Sohail Tanvir retires from international cricket

Sohail Tanvir, the renowned left-arm pacer, has decided to bid farewell to international cricket on Monday. The bowler, known for his unique and unorthodox bowling action, played two Tests, 62 ODIs, and 57 T20Is for Pakistan. He announced his retirement from all formats of international cricket on Twitter and expressed his gratitude to the Pakistan Cricket Board for giving him the chance to represent his country.

Sohail was a vital part of Pakistan’s white-ball cricket team and was regarded as one of the most lethal bowlers due to his distinctive bowling action. He took 54 wickets in T20Is and became a popular pick for franchises around the globe. The cricketer played a significant role in Pakistan’s T20 World Cup triumph in 2009.

He also made headlines for his performance in the inaugural season of the Indian Premier League, where he was the highest wicket-taker for Rajasthan Royals and helped them win the championship. It was the only season that featured Pakistani players, and since then, no Pakistani player has been allowed to participate in the IPL.

Sohail Tanvir will continue playing T20 leagues

In Pakistan Super League (PSL), Sohail played for Karachi Kings, Lahore Qalandars, Multan Sultans, and Quetta Gladiators from 2016 to 2022. His last stint was with Gladiators, where he took 55 wickets in 61 matches. While he is retiring from international cricket, Sohail has announced that he will continue to play domestic and franchise cricket.
