Adil Rashid has defended his request to be omitted from Yorkshires final County Championship match of the season, against Middlesex at Lords starting tomorrow, citing a family illness as the reason for his absence.Rashid, whose busy year has included stints with Adelaide Strikers in the Big Bash and a leading role in Englands World T20 campaign in India, asked to be excused from Yorkshires potential County Championship decider because he needed to rest ahead of Englands tour of Bangladesh, which gets underway at the end of the month.Yorkshire go into the final round needing victory against the current leaders, Middlesex, to have any chance of securing their third title in a row, and they will have to do so without the services of either Rashid or Jonny Bairstow, who was controversially refused permission by the ECB to take part in the contest.Jason Gillespie, preparing for his final match as Yorkshire coach, told ESPNcricinfo: Im obviously frustrated about Rash and I said to him I hope he doesnt regret the decision he has made. But I fully respect his decision. He has played a lot of cricket and he feels he needs a rest.However, in a pointed tweet, Yorkshire captain Andrew Gale, who has been known to let his emotions show in the past, posted: Yes, he wants to rest. Thats his decision. Ill take 11 lads on the field who will give everything to win.While the club itself sttopped short of criticising their player, who has claimed 32 wickets at 33.dddddddddddd.84 and 393 runs at 28.07 in ten Championship appearances this season, Yorkshires supporters have not been so kind, and in a statement posted on his Twitter account on Monday, Rashid insisted his decision had been influenced by a family member, believed to be his grandmother, being admitted to hospital.Unfortunately I have not travelled down with the Yorkshire lads this week as one of my closest family members has been very ill and was recently admitted to hospital, read the statement. I didnt feel that I am in a strong enough mental frame of mind to be at my best, although I did make myself available if I was required to play [if] I felt I could be letting the lads down. But coupled with my personal reasons I have also had a heavy period of cricket recently for Yorkshire and England which has been both physically and mentally draining and it is very unfortunate timing.Family comes first for me and I will be away on England duty this winter with a busy playing schedule. I have been in touch with the Yorkshire players and coaches and I will be wishing the lads all the best this game and I am desperately hoping we can lift the trophy for a 3rd year in a row. ' ' '
