7 Star Parvez bundles out Assam for 165
RANJI TROPHY-DAY 2
Srinagar, Dec 2: After shining with bat, it was turn for Parvez Rasool to shine in bowling as he took seven wickets for Jammu and Kashmir to bundle out Assam for 165 runs on the second day of the four day Ranji Trophy match at Nehru Stadium in Guwahati on Sunday.
J&K finished their first inning on 323 runs. Parvez top scored with gritty 67 while as Obaid Haroon with 52, Waseem Raza with 40 were other main notable scorers.
Chasing a JK’s first inning total of 323, host side Assam could not stand in front of quality off breaks of Parvez Rasool. It was the day when everything was going right both for JK and Parvez. The newly included pacer Mudasir Ahmad rising to the occasion gave JK first break by removing opener PP Das for 28. After that their was no looking for JK as they bundled out whole Assam side for 165 runs. Parvez starred with seven wicket haul while as Mudasir, M Gupta and Ram Dayal chipped in with one wicket each.
At the end of days play JK were on one run for the loss of no wicket with Adil Reshi and skipper Ian Dev Singh on the crease. JK have already got lead of 159 runs with 10 wickets in hand.
It was dominating performance from the side that has been fighting the selection fiasco that broke out during J&K-Andhra Pradesh match. The team is playing without senior Kashmir based players, Abid Nabi and Majid Dar. Every one in State and JKCA circles was expecting side to fail without the proven senior stars. However with performance like this they have proved their critics wrong and have given chance for JK cricket to be news for all the good reasons now.
“Finally JK cricket is in news for the good reasons. It is great to see our boys showing mental strength to cope up with the fiasco that has cropped up in JK Cricket in recent times. We hope they go on to win this match with bog margin thereby bringing cricket back on track,” said well known sports personality of Valley Reyaz Wani.
