“Happy birthday to Sohail Tanvir bhai. T20 king, missing you in LPL,” Shinwari said on Twitter.
Tanvir is currently the fifth-highest wicket-taker in T20 history as he has taken 368 wickets in 353 matches at an average of 24.85 and an economy rate of 7.37.
He was supposed to play for the Kandy Tuskers in the ongoing Lanka Premier League (LPL), but tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19) upon arriving in Sri Lanka.
