Srinagar: After another shaky start, top cricketer of State, Parvez Rasool stepped to rescue J&K inning by scoring free flowing 82 runs to take total to 159 for the loss of five wickets in 42 overs in the match of Ranji trophy against Goa at Surat on Thursday.
After the end of 42 overs JK had lost five wickets with Ian Dev still at the crease on classy 56. Earlier JK had terrible start to the match with three top order batsman back in the pavilion for the score of only 20. Shubam Khajuria was first to for the score of eight runs, scoring five, Adil was next for the score of 18, scoring three. Skipper Mithun Manhas who returned for the match got out for naught.
At that point it looked like that J&K will have another batting collapse. However, coming of Parvez Rasool in the middle changed the tempo of the game. It took attack to Goa scoring runs freely in all corners. While Ian Dev was solid at other end it was Parvez who gave nightmare to Goa bowlers. Parvez score 82 runs of just 83 deliveries before getting out LBW to Shadab Jakati. His inning included 13 fours and two sixes. After his fall J&K lost another wicket, Bandeep Singh got out for 10. Currently Ian Dev on 56 and J&k hopes of posting a decent total on board rest on his shoulders.
