Pakistani team is currently on Australia tour. Where the team is playing a three test match series. The team had to face defeat in the first two test matches. The third match will be played on Sydney grounds from January 3. But now a big uproar has come to light in the Pakistani cricket team. A new controversy has arisen due to PCB’s national junior team selector Sohail Tanvir playing in the T20 league in America.

Sohail Tanveer came to play league even after being a selector

Pakistan Cricket Board’s decision to allow National Junior Chief Selector Sohail Tanvir to play in the ongoing T20 league in America is being criticized a lot, due to which questions of conflict of interest are also being raised. Tanvir moved to play in the American Premier League (APL) soon after Pakistan’s youth squad was announced for the ICC Under-19 World Cup squad. A PCB official said that Tanveer was allowed to play in the league only when he was appointed as the national junior selector. In Pakistan, salaries are given for the posts of Senior and Junior Chief Selectors.

Hafeez will focus only on job

Tanveer is playing for Premium Paks in the APL and the league is yet to get approval from the American Cricket Council. The entire episode has put senior team chief selector Wahab Riaz in focus as he prepares to play in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) in February and March next year. This is completely opposite to the case of Mohammad Hafeez. Hafeez was playing in various T20 leagues after retiring from international cricket and after becoming the director of the Pakistani team, he announced that he would concentrate only on his job.

Interestingly, some time ago the PCB had forced Inzamam Ul Haq to step down from the post of chief selector on the issue of ‘conflict of interest’. Inzamam had resigned after it was revealed that he was a partner in the sports management company of Mohammad Rizwan and another famous player’s agent Talha Rehman.

There were changes in the Pakistani team

The Pakistani team could not perform well in the ODI World Cup 2023. Could not even reach the semi-finals. After the World Cup, Babar Azam left the captaincy of all three formats. After this, Shan Masood was made the captain in Test and Shaheen Afridi in T20. Mohammad Hafeez was made the director in place of Mickey Arthur. Wahab Riaz was appointed the Chief Selector of the National Team and Sohail Tanveer was appointed the Chief Selector of the Junior Team.
