No competition with Ashwin, Parvez Rasool will impress with own prowess: Bishan Singh Bedi

Asked about Rasool's qualities, Bedi said, "He is technically very sound off-break bowler. I used to tell him that "tumhara pahla itna accha hain, tumhe doosre ki zarroorat kabhi nahi hogi (You bowl a beautiful off-break and you don't need to use the doosra)." The tour though will be a huge challenge for the J&K lad.

New Delhi: The legendary Bishan Singh Bedi, who has been instrumental in shaping young Parveez Rasool's career, feels the Jammu and Kashmir cricketer should play his natural game and not think about competing with a seasoned pro like Ravichandran Ashwin.

"Rasool deserved this call-up and he should utilize this opportunity to the fullest. He has the temperament which is key to succeed at the highest level," Bedi, a former Indian captain, told PTI reacting to Rasool's inclusion in the senior team for the tour of Zimbabwe.

Since this is a second string squad, the question arises as to what happens when first-choice off-spinner Ashwin makes a comeback after a break.
