Jammu: Taking a dig at the poor cricket infrastructure in the state, Jammu and Kashmir all-rounder Parvez Rasool today voiced his concerns about lack of quality facilities, which is a hindrance for the talented cricketers to showcase their skills and come into national reckoning.

"There are number of problems (with regards to cricket in J&K). We do not have proper infrastructure. We do not have a number of grounds also. We have only two grounds ---one in Jammu and another in Srinagar," Rasool, who is an India A regular and was also first cricketer from state to be selected in the national team, told PTI here today.

Asked to elaborate, Rasool said,"When we go to Srinagar in November, we cannot play there for six months (due to snowfall). After that when we come to Jammu, we are left with only one ground. We do not have good turf wickets (natural grass)."
