“It has been going well so far and Al Hamdullilah I have performed with both bat and ball. The competition isn’t easy but I have managed to click the right cords to make it work,” Parvez said.
“The experience of having played in the league previously is helping a lot and I am able to use my experience for my benefit. Not only I have been able to bowl well and take wickets. But I have also been able to score runs and win matches for my team,” he said.
Parvez Rasool wasn’t last season included by JKCA in any of its teams which was a major surprise. The J&K team had disastrous outings in T20 and Ranji tournaments.
