PARVEZ RASOOL:The Star In Making
‘My Immediate Aim Is To Feature In IPL’
Srinagar, Dec 5: The rising star of JK Cricket, all-rounder Parvez Rasool is hopeful for his inclusion in the next seasons Indian Premiere League (IPL) after guiding his team to thumping 235 win over Assam in the four day Ranji Trophy Group-C encounter at Nehru Stadium Guwahati on Tuesday.
After number of brilliant performances with his bat and ball for the JK team in Tuesday’s match, He scored 187 runs in the match including quick unbeaten 120 of 106 deliveries in second inning; he also took nine wickets including career best figure seven wickets in first inning.
As far as this Ranji season goes, Parvez has emerged as new Star of JK cricket with his consistent performance in the three matches he played. In the second match of the tournament he played marathon knock of 177 runs to salvage respectable draw for team against Goa.
With the performances like this in his kitty, Parvez is eyeing next seasons of IP,“ Everyone wants to play at highest level and I am no different. My aim is to play for Indian team but before that I am aiming for IPL birth this season,” Parvez told Greater Kashmir on phone from Guwahati.
“Currently for national level players IPLK is the first step towards Indian team birth. If you perform well in IPL then you get noticed by selectors and cricket pundits of Country. I hope I get chance to play in IPL after the performances I gave in last four matches for my team,” he added.
However Parvez said that he is more concerned about winning matches for his team rather than individual performance.” I want my team to win on every occasion. It belittles my performance if my team looses. It somehow negates the happiness after team losses,” he said.
When asked about that some people raise question over slow batting in most of his innings he said, “I play according to situation. In longer version of the game I play patiently while in shorter version I play quickly. Still in yesterdays knock of 120 runs came off only 106 deliveries for me. That was too quick for Test cricket”.
About the future of JK cricket he said, “I am no one to say anything about that. However, the youngsters are highly talented and they work hard on their game. If they continue to work hard I am sure future is bright for JK cricket”.
However he ducked the question on the recent controversy involving JKCA and players, “I will not comment on the issue as I keep my focus on cricket nothing else”.
