London, Jan 29 (ANI): Englands new leg spinning hope Adil Rashid is a confident lad judging by the players he models himself on.

The Yorkshire starlet, 20, is currently in his first official tour with Englands senior side having travelled to India as a non-playing spectator.

After playing in the warm-up games in the West Indies, the all-rounder is gunning for a call-up to the Test side, The Sun reported.

I think I should be ready if called upon. Ive been working hard with the coaches and feel I can bring something different, Rashid said.

My batting, as a genuine all-rounder, is a big plus of course and Im an attacking leg-spinner. I guess Id model my batting on Sachin Tendulkar and my bowling on Shane Warne, he added. (ANI)
