English cricketer Adil Rashid will perform Hajj

LONDON: England cricketer Adil Rashid will not be available for ODI series against India after announcing that he will make the Hajj pilgrimage to Makkah.

Rashid, a practicing Muslim, said earlier this year that he had “reached the right time in his life” to make the pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia.

He was granted leave by the England and Wales Cricket Board, and his club side Yorkshire, and is expected to return in mid-July before England’s white-ball series against South Africa.

He says “I’ve been wanting to do it for a little while but I’ve found it pretty difficult with the timings”. “This year, I felt as though it was something that I had to do, and something I wanted to do as well.”

England cricket Board (ECB) pays best wishes to Adil Rashid for Hajj.
