Pune franchise sign J&K all-rounder
Pune Warriors India have signed Parveez Rasool, the off-spinning all-rounder from Jammu and Kashmir, for the 2013 season of the Pepsi IPL.
“We are happy to have on board, one of the most gifted young cricketers in the country. Parveez Rasool will enhance not just our team, but also the overall tournament. The IPL has provided a platform for young talent across the length and breadth of the land, and we have no doubt that an exciting talent like Rasool will distinguish himself in the weeks to follow,” Sushanto Roy, Managing Director, Sahara Adventure Sports Ltd, said.
Rasool was Jammu and Kashmir’s most successful cricketer in the 2012-13 edition of the Ranji Trophy. He scored 594 runs and took 33 wickets. Picked to represent the Board President’s XI in a two-day game against the visiting Australian team at Chennai, he bowled brilliantly to finish with figures of 7-45.
