“Anyone can check my this year’s performance. If I have played for 17 years, does that mean I should not be part of J&K team? is made on the basis of performance,” he said.
He said JKCA was hijacked by some people. “Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association has been turned into Parvaiz Rasool Cricket Academy,” he claimed, while questioning the selection process.
