England legspinner Adil Rashid reportedly evaded tax for four years and has been named in a defaulters’ list by the UK’s tax collection authority HM Revenue and Custom.
Rashid, as per The Telegraph and Argus, failed to file his tax returns between 2013-2017, and has been ordered to cough up £100,280.89 in back taxes.
Furthermore, he has been punished with a penalty of £36,608.13, which is in addition to the ignominy of being named in the list that highlights tax defaulters.
Rashid, born in Bradford, is of Pakistani descent and hails from the Mirpuri community.
He started his international career for England in 2009 and has since played in a 100 ODIs and 43 T20Is, but just 19 Tests – which signifies his role as a limited-overs specialist.
He was a part of England’s World Cup-winning squad of 2019.
