Sohail Tanvir at a loss over his continued absence from Pakistan’s T20 squads

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.

He had registered bowling figures of 3-14 in back-to-back matches, playing a pivotal part in victories over Quetta Gladiators and Peshawar Zalmi.sohail tanvir

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.

In a recent media talk, Tanvir was asked to comment on him being out of favour with the national selectors, to which he said: “I get paid more for playing T20 leagues around the world than I get playing for Pakistan. Even then I always prioritise the national team over money.

“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.”
