Pakistani bowler Sohail Tanvir feels able to deliver as an all-rounder for the country’s cricket team, especially in the game’s shorter formats. Tanvir was part of the Multan Sultans team that won the 2021 PSL season and made a good contribution with both bat and ball.

Sohail Tanvir believes the role he got in seventh place last PSL season gave him the freedom and time to express himself as a batsman. He has never been fired, and has forged some important partnerships in the process.

Speaking to Cricket Pakistan, Sohail Tanvir explained why he feels ready to join the Pakistani team as an all-rounder.

“In the last PSL games I was responsible for beating 7th place after a long time. Before that, I hit 8th or 9th place, where you get an average of 4-6 balls to stand on. But on No. 7 you have more time that I got with the Multan Sultans. I see that there is a place in the Pakistani team for an all-rounder that everyone can grab. So I definitely have it in mind, ” said Tanvir.

We didn’t bowling according to the requirements of the situation against England: Sohail Tanvir

Pakistan had a disappointing match against England in the recent ODI series, where they were beaten 3-0 by a runner-up. Sohail Tanvir thought that while the conditions were conducive to fast bowling, the Pakistani bowlers skittles a little shorter.

The left arm pacemaker shed light on how the absence of four-day cricket is affecting the current Pakistani bowling attack in adjusting to its line and length.

“These players adapt very well in T20 cricket, but when it comes to the longer version of the game I think there is not enough preparation. There were seam conditions in the ODI series and we didn’t as per the requirements of the situation. Our lengths were a little shorter. As a bowler, the only way to learn this is to bowl long spells. It is important to play red ball cricket and things will get difficult until you go through that process, “concluded Sohail Tanvir.
