Prior to his wicketless outing against Quetta Gladiators on Wednesday, Multan Sultans pacer Sohail Tanvir was in superb form with the ball in the ongoing Pakistan Super League 2018.
Those twin performances were fair examples of how the unorthodox left-arm pacer usually performs in T20 league cricket, and for which he remains a hot commodity in the format.
But despite his expertise and proven track record in the 20-over game, Tanvir is no more a regular fixture of Pakistan’s T20 unit, with his last appearance for the side coming against West Indies last April.
“I perform all over the world and then when I don’t get to represent my country…it’s disappointing.”
The 33-year-old, however, refuses to take no for an answer, saying he will continue knocking on the selectors’ doors and answer their call if recalled to the national side.
“My job is to perform,” he said. “I have no answer to why I don’t get included in T20 squads. Nevertheless, whenever Pakistan needs me I’ll be there for the team.”
