Pakistan left-arm seamer Sohail Tanvir has revealed that he is aiming to make his international return at the 2020 World Twenty20 in Australia.
Tanvir has not played for Pakistan since April 2017, but insists that he has not given up on his international career, especially as he has been in superb form as of late.
The 34-year-old was the joint fourth-highest wicket-taker in the recently concluded Pakistan Super League (PSL), where he took 15 wickets in 12 matches for the Quetta Gladiators at an average of 21.73 and an economy rate of 6.93.
“One cannot stop hoping for a better future and whilst there may be some disappointment about not making the ODI squad, I am really looking forward to the World T20 tournament which is coming up next [year],” he told PakPassion. “[It] will not be an issue when it comes to selection. If a bowler is performing well for a side and is also bringing experience to the table then there can be nothing better.
“There are people who are ready to label me as a specialist T20 League player and so on, but the fact is that playing for Pakistan is still my passion and I am not going to give that up for sure.”
