Parvez Rasool became the first player from the state of Jammu and Kashmir to be picked for India. He was named in the Indian squad for the One-Day International tour to Zimbabwe which will take place later this month.

PTI reported him saying that his call-up for the Indian team was just the beginning. He said, ""After proving the faith of all the cricket fans from the state, I hope I can do the same for the entire nation."

Rasool had a great season for Jammu and Kashmir in the Ranji Trophy and the country took notice of his talent. He was subsequently picked by the Pune Warriors India for the Indian Premier League (IPL), 2013.
