Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir captain Parvez Rasool hopes his impressive all-round performance in the Ranji Trophy cricket tournament would earn him a recall to the national team soon.
In 2013, Rasool, a spin-bowling all-rounder, became the first cricketer from the state to get selected for India after he was picked up for the ODI series in Zimbabwe. Though he never got a chance to play, Rasool didn't lose hope.
Rasool has been the key to Jammu and Kashmir's success in the Ranji Trophy this season, when the team made it to the quarter-finals for the first time in Ranji history. Rasool struck a century and picked up six wickets against Punjab in a quarter-final tie but his efforts went in vain.
