Adil Rashid Enters Record Books

Hyderabad, Aug 13: England demolished India by an inning and 159 runs to win the second Test to take a 2-0 lead in the five-match series at Lord's on Sunday.

A lot of performances from the hosts' camp stood out as the visitors succumbed to their biggest defeat at the home of cricket since 1974. However, one cricketer, who did practically nothing during the Test, also entered the record books. Adil Rashid, who wasn't used at all by skipper Joe Root as a bowler, ended up making a bizarre record of his own.

Adil Rashid on Sunday became just the 14th player and first Englishman in 13 years to complete a Test match without bowling, batting, taking a catch or effecting a run out.

Rashid's 'achievement' was far from unique in the 141-year history of Test cricket, with 13 previous instances of players having equally quiet games.
