Indian new International player, Parvez Rasool was very unhappy with Jammu and Kashmir cricket association. On Monday, angry Parvez Rasool said he would be forced by the Jammu and Kasmir to play for a different state.
Rassol said, “Yes, I am the pride of Jammu and Kashmir. Youngsters get inspired from me. But things have not improved over the years. A player has a time span of three to four years which can be termed as a make-or-break period. I am in national reckoning. If things don’t change, I may have to think about other options like playing for a different state.”
He is the first cricketer from their valley to play in the Indian national team.

The 28-yerars-old said, “We lack facilities. We just have two wickets in entire Jammu and Kashmir – one in Jammu and another in Kashmir 300 kilometers apart. Players will obviously suffer. When I was included in Team India, I thought our problems would be over. Look at the environment in Kalyani. There are so many news here. Here you can enjoy cricket.”
“But back home, infrastructure is almost nil. There’s talent. But nothing has changed. Worst things were happening. Hope the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators improves the conditions.”

“Cricket must go on. There’s politics everywhere, but cricket does not suffer. There’s infrastructure, coaches, and facility. I’m thinking of quitting, but it’s at an early stage, and there’s nothing official as yet,” he added.
A few years back Rassol had offers from three states. But he rejected these offers for his state (Jammu and Kasmir). Now his home state forced him to for another state.
He said, “Non-cricketers are ruling the association without any knowledge of the game. If your team does well, your chances of representing India also improves. We have huge potential but our problems not helping the situation.”
