Pak fast-bowler Tanvir eyes national team comeback
Karachi, Nov. 7 (ANI): Out-of-favour Pakistani fast-bowler Tanvir Ahmed is eyeing a comeback to the national team after putting on an impressive show in the ongoing President's Trophy.
Tanvir, who made his last international appearance in a One-Day International (ODI) against Ireland in May 2011, was dropped despite performing reasonably well in the limited chances he got on the big stage, reports The Express Tribune.
Tanvir, who is the highest wicket-taker for PQA at the President's Trophy, also remained confident of donning the national colours soon.
"I was a bit disturbed when I was dropped from the side. But I made sure I don't lose hope. I train hard and try and keep myself super fit," said Tanvir, who has played four Tests, two ODIs and a Twenty20.
"I know how to bowl with the new and old ball and that gives me an advantage over others. This should be beneficial with two major series coming up against India and South Africa," he added.
Coach Rashid Latif also praised Tanvir, adding that the fast-bowler deserved a recall in the national team.
"Tanvir is currently the best in domestic cricket because he has earned his wickets through bowling in the right areas. It's not easy for a fast-bowler to bowl spells of 12-15 overs and consistently take wickets. I feel he deserves a call-up to the national team," Latif said. (ANI)
