SrinagarJammu and Kashmir skipper Parvez Rasool might have been ignored by the BCCI selectors and Indian Premier League franchises, but star all-rounder continues to impress in Bangladesh.
After the IPL snub, Parvez Rasool signed up for Legends of Rupgunj in Dhaka Division One Day League, Bangladesh and he hasnt disappointed the team management playing a starring role in just his third ODI for his new side.
Known for his off-spinning prowess, Parvez exhibited his skills his bat to help Legends of Rupgunj beat defending champions Gazi Group of Cricketers by six wickets.
In his second season in the league, Parvez blasted an undefeated 61 to take his side over the line after Legends of Rupgunj were struggling at 86 for the loss of four wickets chasing 192. The J&K skipper hit five fours and a brace of sixes in his 57-ball knock.
Parvez stitched together an important 100-run partnership with Tushar Rehman to make sure their side had better off Gazi Group of Cricketers.
Parvez represented Gazi Group of Cricketers last season shining with both bat and ball to power them to title glory.
Of late Parvez has fallen behind in pecking order as far as spinning all-rounders are concerned in Indian domestic cricket. With no IPL franchise picking him up for two seasons on the bounce, the J&K skipper-states only international cricketer thus far-hasnt been able to find place in India-A teams squads in recent times. He will hope his runs and wickets in Bangladesh bring selectors attention towards him and he is back in the contention.
