India and Jammu and Kashmir all-rounder Parvez Rasool is not amused by the pitch roller controversy, which apparently, according to the 32-year-old has gone out of hand. Things started to take an ugly turn when JKCA accused him of stealing a roller. Rasool was asked to return the equipment or face police custody. The all-rounder has now requested the BCCI to intervene.

Few in JKCA feel that matter is blown out of proportion and think Rasool is being targeted unnecessarily. A veteran and a role model to youngsters, Rasool has helped Jammu and Kashmir win quite a few matches and has strived hard to develop cricket for his state team. And hence this news of Rasool stealing a roller comes as a shock to people who have watched him closely. 

Speaking to Indian Express, he said: “I think BCCI should intervene now. Please see my work. I’m trying to promote cricket on my part. I had spent from my own pocket to build that ground and meet daily expenses. I don’t take any money, I help players.”

Rasool feels that JKCA is trying to frame him unnecessarily, saying stealing a roller is not as simple as taking away a tennis ball. “Roller is not like a tennis ball that I can keep in my pocket and roam wherever I want to. It’s for ground use, it’s for cricket development. I really don’t know why these things are happening here. I got a ‘second notice’ which stated that we had sent you a notice on 5th of July.”

Rasool concluded by saying that he always thinks about the welfare of cricket in his state and backs the youngsters to do well.
