SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir’s best cricketer Parvez Rasool and medium pacer Umar Nazir went unsold but hard-hitting batsman Manzoor Dar also known as Pandav bagged his maiden IPL deal of Rs 20 lakh from Kings XI Punjab.

“Congratulations & all the best for the tournament. Look forward to watching you play,” former CM Omar Abdullah wrote on his twitter page after the franchise from Punjab picked up hard-hitting batsman from Kashmir.

He became second player from Kashmir to be drafted into an IPL franchise after Rasool, who failed to attract a single bid during the auction.

The other player from Kashmir, fast bowler Umar Nazir, was also not picked by any team. (AGENCIES)
