Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah Saturday lashed out at the BCCI for not fielding all-rounder Parvez Rasool in any of the five ODI games against Zimbabwe.
“Did you really have to take him all the way to Zimbabwe to demoralize him? Wouldn’t it have been cheaper to just do it at home?” Omar said in a cynical tweet after Rasool was not included in the last game against the Zimbabwe.
“Really disappointed that Parvez Rasool hasn’t been given a game in Zimbabwe,” he said.
Disappointed at Rasool’s non-inclusion in the playing XI of Indian cricket team in the ongoing Zimbabwe tour, Omar had yesterday urged the BCCI to give him a chance to prove himself.
“Come on BCCI, give the young man (Rasool) a chance to prove himself,” Omar wrote on his twitter page yesterday.
Rasool is the only member of the 15-member squad who has not seen any action so far. Ajinkya Rahane was warming the bench alongside Rasool but the opening batsman got his chance in Saturday’s game.
