Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah, on Friday lavished praise on Parveez Rasool for making an impressive debut in the cash-rich Indian Premier League last night.

"Well done Parvez Rasool. Great name for your first scalp," the CM wrote on his twitter page referring to Rasool's maiden IPL scalp Jacques Kallis during Pune Warriors' match against Kolkata Knight Riders.

Rasool bowled four tight overs off-breaks as he had impressive figures of 1/23 to show for his efforts. "Finally Parvez Rasool gets a game in the 2013 #IPL. Come on Parvez make us proud. Good luck," the Chief minister had tweeted before the start of play.

Rasool replaced leg-spinner Rahul Sharma to earn his maiden IPL cap. The unassuming player from the valley shot to limelight with a seven-wicket haul against visiting Australians while playing for the Board President's XI earlier this year.
