The guy just took a 7fer against the aussies.also had a brilliant fc season with ball and bat.
 
4 of those wickets were of tailenders and rest of australian batsmen have not much experience playing in indian conditions, maybe apart from Smith who plays in IPL.

Anyways 7 wickets are 7 wickets and he is an allrounder so good luck to him.
 
Against a side featuring just two specialists.

I'll hold judgement on that.
 
Not just this match also he had the best season among the spinners in fc cricket.
 
Abid Nabi was the next :akhtar, probably selling fruits in Srinagar now.
 
He is very highly regarded by a few former spinners in India.Next Big thing,dont know.I hope he is.

Typical generic criticism. Learn to appreciate for once. What was he supposed to do? not pick wickets because the quality of opposition wasn't good?

Why would anyone want to be the next Akhtar? that's an insult :asif

Ability to knock over the tail in modern cricket is priceless anyway. The past great Oz team & current England/SA lineups win quite a few matches set up by wagging tails.
 
Pervez deserves a chance in the playing eleven.

May be the 3rd Test. I would play Rasool in place of Jadeja.

Oh ja nass para, learn to read the whole post before you start acting smart. I said 7 wickets are 7 wickets and every sensible person understands that is said in a positive way.

And I also highlighted what wickets he took before hyping him up.

And lectures on appreciations shouldn't come from a guy who hardly appreciates one of the best spinner in the world today.

Abid Nabi is still a very good bowler for J&K. His career was ruined because of his involvement with ICL. He lost couple of years of his career due to that.
 
Rasool took the wickets of Cowan/Wade and smith.

Cowan and Wade will play the tests i assume.So not a bad outing for the guy.

Heard Bedi rates him as the best offie in India.
 
Good to see someone from Jammu & Kashmir doing well, what's more is that he is a very capable batsmen as well.

This suggests that his talent is justified as Bishan Bedi is a harsh critic of spinners as he believes any spinner who bends his arm is a chucker and so should be banned. Bedi once said that all of the Pakistan team bent the arms, including the quicks. I believe it was during India's tour of Pakistan in 2003-04 as written in Rahul Bhattacharya's book, On tour with India.

Rasool gave an interview today.He said that Bedi asked him to concentrate on his offie and flight.And asked him to first master his off spin and then think of the doosra.

He is a very very traditional off spinner in Swann mode.
 
The most exciting thing, for me, is that he is from Kashmir :)

Wish him good luck and I hope he become the next Indian great :ajmal

That's why Bedi supports his rise. Bedi was a brilliant bowler not because of turn or different deliveries but because of deceptions of flight and pace. Truly a spin bowling legend. I believe it's good not to raise too many spin bowlers with unorthodox actions or deliveries because many of the unconvential bowlers are just flash in the pans and eventually get found out. In addition, many of them desert flighting the ball which is also a result of T20s. For example, both of Sri Lanka's "mystery" bowlers aren't very consistent and in my opinion aren't very good. Mahela said that Akila Dananjaya was going to be their suprise package in the 2012 20/20 WC, however he didn't produce anything special whatsoever. Whereas Ajantha Mendis is heavily inconsistent and quite rubbish against the major teams. Now, some people may say that I a basher of unconvential actions or deliveries but to prove I am not look at my avatar/profile image. Yes, it's the unconvential master, Saqlain Mushtaq, bowling a doosra to Damien Martyn of Australia. I am only a supporter of unconvential actions/deliveries if they actually work.

Too bad Rasool is not Pakistani othehrwise Bedi would have said he saw him bending his arm 45° with his own (spectacled) eyes...
 
I wouldnt get too excited about taking a 7fer against our guys first up in India.

But if he has also done well in first class, perhaps a promising talent. India have capable spinners but not really anyone with that extra level of ability right now.

Nothing new there, has been going on since last 20 years...

Indian spinners are missing their biggest assist home Indian umpires. That is why they are so average now.
 
happy to hear about him,but he is a better batsman than a bowler,Harmeet is in line ahead of him,will be very happy though if someone from J & K makes it big,all the very best
 
Truly a great news as our spin cup board is staring bare at us. This kid has had a good domestic season and backed that up with this performance. Yes it is the oppositions first match and he didnt bowl to a first choice XI, but that was not his fault.

He was given a job and he has achieved that stupendously. Indian selectors, please give this guy more opportunities in our A tours (and keep him away from T20 - IPL included). The most heart warming thing is that he flights the ball and is a conventional offspinner - a rare species nowadays and so vital for the longer format.

That he is a Kashmiri is just incidental - I care a damn about who represents India - what is required is the ability to deliver the goods...go Parvez!
 
I won't read too much into the 7 wkt hall, but if Bedi describes him as an exceptional talent, then there is a reason to feel excited. I haven't seen bedi praising any Indian cricketer apart from SRT, and he's generally a critic, so he mst hav seen something that he went out of his way to praise Rasool.

Bedi is an old fart who wouldn't recognize or acknowledge talent if it was in front of him. No one should take anything he says seriously half of the bowlers today are chuckers in his opinion. :facepalm:

well we could agree to disagree with it, bcoz i am with Bedi on that esp. when it comes to offies. The list is very long constituting of Murali, Bhajji, Botha, Ajmal, Samuels, etc etc.
 
He does not bowl doosra and believes in flight and variation. He is a classical offie. I would love to see him in Indian team as soon as possible. Interesting to see J&K people's reaction as well.
 
Has signed up for Pune Warriors. Becomes the first Valley resident to play in the IPL. Though the title for the first ethnic Kashmiri to play in the league will remain with Suresh Raina.

All-rounder Parvez Rasool on Thursday became first cricketer from Jammu and Kashmir to bag an IPL contract, signing up with Pune Warriors for the 2013 season.

Rasool, who was a star performer for the Board President's XI by grabbing seven Australian wickets, was being chased by at least three franchises but the 24-year-old signed on dotted lines for the Sahara Pariwar owned franchise.

"A few franchises approached me but it was Pune who approached me first. So it was an ethical decision to join them as they had shown interest much before the Australia match happened.

I am very excited and it is an honour to play in the IPL and become the first cricketer from the valley to achieve this feat," an excited Rasool said over phone from Bilaspur where the Jammu and Kashmir squad is based for Vijay Hazare Trophy.

According to IPL sources, Kings XI Punjab were chasing Rasool as Chandigarh based franchisee's proximity to Jammu and Kashmir.

Since Rasool is an uncapped player, he will be getting Rs 20 lakh as per IPL norms.

"Parvez is an asset for us. He is a capable all-rounder and since we can have only four foreigners, his batting and off-break bowling makes him a good choice in the playing XI.

"Also the kind of exposure that he will be getting interacting with international cricketers will be phenomenal. Trust me, he can be a good player in the longer version too," a franchise official stated.

Rasool is excited that he will be getting a chance to share the dressing room with Australian captain Michael Clarke.

"It is a dream come true for me that I will be interacting with Michael Clarke. Also having Yuvi Paaji ( Yuvraj Singh) will be a bonus. I have just started my journey in top-flight cricket and this stint with Pune will only help me grow.

I hope that I will be able soak in all the information that I can get from our coach Allan Donald," he said.

On asked what this IPL contract meant for budding cricketers of his state, Rasool said, "I would like to convey a small message for all my well-wishers in Jammu and Kashmir.

I would like to tell them that it was not only talent but hardwork that has helped me realise my dream. I believe, parents would now believe that someone can make a decent career out of cricket even from our state."

His mentor Bishan Singh Bedi has never been a great supporter of IPL and probe Rasool on this, he laughed and said, "Bedi sir mujhse bahoot pyar karte hain (Bedi sir loves me a lot)."
 
Bring him on vs Pakistan in T20s

Shahid Afridi is ready

Really???.... Another Afridi fanboy? Well, don't you remember how Afridi was out to Dinesh Mongia in the 2003 WC and to Rangana Herath last year. Then again, you are an Afridi fanboy. *SIGH*

Your dream is shattered; he has just been bought by Pune Warriors.
 
Currently bowling very well for North Zone against West Zone in Deodhar Trophy Final. StarCricket is telecasting the match live.
He is bowling very well and turning the ball very nicely, for me he looks like a genuine off-spinner with nice control. His action looks somewhat similar to Graeme Swann.
I think soon he will get chance to play for Indian team.
Ashwin has to concentrate more on his off spin otherwise I can see Rasool soon replacing the Fatty Ashwin :malik
 
he batted very well too.looks a very fine prospect.dunno why we are persisting with Bhajan when he is there
 
Already looks to be a very good all rounder at the domestic level. His temperament is quite good, hasn't looked nervous at all whether batting or bowling.
 
Looks like a good player. Bowls well and bats well

Should get into the indian side soon
 
Averages 38 with the bat actually and has 3 hundreds to his name already. :kapil

Get this fellow in the team asap.
Ideally Ojha should play in 3rd test and Rasool in 4th. Aussies will be flabbergasted as to whom to decipher during the drawing board time.
 
Parvez Rasool is Swan version with great ability to flight the ball. He is a traditional offe. having watching him very closely in my playground Anantnag Indian Occupied Kashmir, he not only is a very good bowler but a very aggressive batsman. Interestingly, it would be hard for him to get in team becoz of Kashmiri origin as he was questioned by Indian Police for involvement in some attack, which is no surprise for any Professional kashmiri

Yeah, I guess that's why he's already played for India A.

Oh I guess that must have been before the 'attack'.

Actually he in the scheme of things only becoz Bishan Singh Bedi is coach of J&k and the same likes conventional offes a lot, otherwise You can find exceptional fast bowlers from J&K which are 145+ which never get a look in and end up selling apples. Another interesting thing to watch is if he plays for India, what would be reaction of People of kashmir when anger against India is increasing exponentially here.

Are you saying there's discrimination in Indian cricket, not against Muslims, but against Kashmiri Muslims?

Given our history of trundlers trundling into trundle (TrundleIndia R Us), we'd be grabbing any bowler who can consistently bow 145 +, with both hands and feet.

So I do not subscribe to that theory.

Another interesting thing to watch is if he plays for India, what would be reaction of People of kashmir when anger against India is increasing exponentially here.

That would be interesting indeed.

Ashwin has to perform really bad for this guy to come in the test team.

In ODIs ...I would try this guy ahead of Ashwin ... or play both.

this guy will compete with jadeja lol
good thing is i like his technique and he is off spinner
one god season and he might be in team
 
Making his debut for Pune Warriors today.

Looks decent spinner. Has some variations. Was hit for a couple of boundaries by Gambhir. But adjusted his length quickly.

Can't wait to see him bat.
 
Yes his action is quite similar to Hafeez' as well as Swann's. He seems like a classical offie with a good top spinner.
 
walks in like hafeez , starts like hafeez but delivers like swann :ajmal
 
Oh well a kashmiri finally getting a chance.
 
^ U been sleeping or does only a muslim counts as a kashmiri for u ?
No i was pretty much awake but i guess you were on a trip to mars? How did u find the aliens? Did they dance for you?

How many kashmiris who play for JAMMU AND KASHMIR have been given chances at the highest level? My post was made in that sense but people like you who have this communal mahabharat going on in their minds always bring out the negativity in what others say.
 
For them only Muslims are Kashmiris and humans rest dont count.
Let me reply to this nonsense of yours in a slightly different way.

"Parvez Rasool becomes first J&K cricketer to debut in IPL" - India Today

"IPL 2013: Parvez Rasool makes IPL debut, first from the valley" - Indian express

do the people who run these media also consider only muslims to be kashmiris?

And I dont need to tell anybody on this forum about who doesn't consider whom human. I know that sounded like a tongue twister but anyways.

Rasool was detained by Bangalore police for questioning in 2009 in connection with suspected presence of explosives at the
Chinnaswamy Stadium. He was given a clean chit a few days later.

Some posters just post some disgrace stuffs here.
Why religion has to be brought in the game of cricket.
India where there is unity in diversity has shown world regularly by always playing game without showing any indifference to any religion. Indian team always had players of all religion.

Before posting some rubbish one should look into their own house and decide are their country giving opportunities to Hindu, Christians, Shias, Ahmadis, etc etc

and God knows why many of our Indian friends got mad at it and started talking trash that we consider only muslims as kashmiris. You tell me how on earth did my post even indicate towards any such idea?

Yes I support Pakistan team like most kashmiris do but I am happy for parvez as are all kashmiris. He has chosen cricket as a way to earn his living and it shouldn't matter if he plays for india or australia.
