J&K CM urges BCCI to give Rasool a chance in Zimbabwe

Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has urged the BCCI to give a chance to all-rounder Parvez Rasool in the ongoing limited overs series against Zimbabwe.

"Come on BCCI give the young man (Rasool) a chance to prove himself," Omar wrote on his twitter page.

The Chief Minister, an avid cricket follower, has expressed disappointment that the Jammu and Kashmir cricketer has not been given a game even though India has taken an unassailable lead in five-match the ODI series against Zimbabwe.

"Really disappointed that Parvez Rasool hasn`t been given a game in Zimbabwe," he said.

Rasool, who became the first cricketer from the state to be selected in the national team, has been warming the bench in Zimbabwe alongside Ajinkya Rahane, who is also yet to get a game.
