However, he still received a call to play for England in Test cricket when ECB announced a 13-man squad for the first Test against India last week. <p></p> <p></p><strong>READ: <a href="http://www.cricketcountry.com/news/india-vs-england-2018-adil-rashid-lone-specialist-spinner-in-englands-playing-xi-for-edgbaston-test-730864">Rashid lone specialist spinner in England's Playing XI</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>"With the amount of right handers in India's team, Rashid gives us a really attacking spinning option and he's in confident form," Root was quoted as saying on the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) website. <p></p> <p></p>"He's gone about his business just as he does in the one-day side, he doesn't seem affected at all," Root added, hinting at the flak the 30-year-old has been drawing since his inclusion. <p></p> <p></p>Former England captain Michael Vaughan initially said Rashid's recall was "ridiculous", a comment the spinner described as "stupid". <p></p> <p></p>Vaughan further added later: "I don't think he has prepared well enough." <p></p> <p></p>Backing Rashid, Root further said: "I've known Adil for a long time. I think he's grown as a player massively in the last couple of years, he has a better understanding of what he wants to do." <p></p> <p></p>Meanwhile, Root confirmed the team for the first Test against India starting at Edgbaston on Wednesday. <p></p> <p></p>The captain announced that Moeen Ali and Jamie Porter will miss out on the starting XI from the 13-man squad named for England's 1000th Test. <p></p> <p></p>Jos Buttler will also be the vice-captain for the five-match series. <p></p> <p></p>On Buttler's elevation to vice-captain, Root added: "Jos is vice-captain of the white-ball side, thinks hugely about the game and is respected in the dressing room. <p></p> <p></p>"We are thinking about the long-term and Jos is a big part of that." <p></p> <p></p>Butter, 27, is already vice-captain for England's ODI side, ranked No.1 in the latest ICC world rankings.
