The Board of Control for cricket in India has defended the decision not to play Parvez Rasool in the 5th ODI in Bulawayo on Saturday. Reacting to Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah's tweet that off spinner Rasool got a raw deal, BCCI vice president Rajeev Shukla said "Selecting a player for a match depends on many conditions and it is a call taken by the team management. When someone gets selected in team india it is a very big achievement. Rasool has been selected because of his hard work. It is the team management, captain and coach to decide the playing eleven depending on playing conditions. There is no need to worry as Rasool will definitely get his chance."
Earlier on Saturday, Omar urged the BCCI to give Rasool a chance to prove himself.
"Come on BCCI give the young man (Rasool) a chance to prove himself," he wrote on his twitter page.
