Parvez returns home after playing in IPL
‘Credit of my success goes to my father, local coaches’
SHABIR AHMAD

SRINAGAR, May 22: Kashmiri cricketer, Parvez Rasool who returned home after playing in Indian Premier League (IPL), today gave the credit for his success to his father and coaches.

Parvez was selected for IPL after his brilliant performance in Ranji and other high profile cricket tournaments at national level. He is the first Kashmiri cricketer to make it to IPL.

In an interaction with media persons at his home in Bijbehara, Parvez said the credit for his success in the game goes to his father and coaches. “I started from the street cricket and made it to IPL.

“I am more than happy for making it to the high profile cricket. But the credit for my success goes to none other than my father and my coaches in domestic cricket,” Parvez said.

Parvez said his father always supported him in the game. “Since my father has himself been a cricketer so he always supported me like a friend. It is because of his support only I am here. Besides my coaches in domestic cricket, Abdul Qayoom Bagaw and Bishan Singh Bedi have also been my source of inspiration,” Parvez said.

On his refusal to promote the liquor brand on his jersey Parvez said, “Being a Muslim I can never compromise with my religious principles. I cannot afford to promote any such thing which is forbidden in my religion.”

He also thanked his team management for accepting his request to hide the logo of the liquor brand on his jersey. “There was no pressure from the team management over my decision. They respected my religious sentiment and accepted my request,” Parvez said.

He also rued the lack of sports facilities in the valley. “There are many talented cricketers in Kashmir particularly in rural area. But unfortunately their talent is not exposed due to the lack of facilities here. We have not played even a single match on turf in valley for last one year,” Parvez said.

He, however, refused to comment on the match fixing in IPL involving two cricket stars and Pune Warriors going out of IPL.
