A bowler needs to be brave, confident in shorter formats, says Adil Rashid

ABU DHABI: The advent of T10 cricket and the employment of unconventional shots are throwing fresh challenges at the bowlers and England leg-spinner Adil Rashid feels they will have to be brave and confident enough to stand up to the task.
Rashid is turning up for Delhi Bulls in the ongoing edition of Abu Dhabi T10.
“It can be difficult because in this day and age you are playing on smaller grounds, flatter pitches and bigger bats. Batsmen are hitting the ball further so they can be a bit difficult especially if you get hit for a couple of games in a row for sixes and fours. It can play on your mind,” Rashid said.
“But the most important thing as a spinner is to maintain that confidence knowing that you are a match winner, you can change the game in 3 or 4 or 5 balls by getting a key wicket.
“The you need to prepare well at nets, working on your variations like googlies, slides, etc, and prepare yourself mentally as well.” —PTI
