PCB allows Junior Chief Selector Tanvir to play in APL: Questions raised on Conflict of Interest

Pakistan’s junior chief selector Sohail Tanvir is under severe criticism as he has decided to play US based franchised T20 league in December 2023. Former Pakistan Fast Bowler and current junior chief selector Tanvir went to play for the Premium Paks in the American Premier League (APL) which raised questions about the conflict of interests. Tanvir went there to play after announcing under 19 squad of Pakistan for the upcoming under-19 World Cup.

News Agency PTI’s report suggests, Tanvir has been granted permission by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to play league cricket at the time of his appointment as junior chief selector. The positions of junior and senior selectors in Pakistan are paid jobs.

The whole Sohail Tanvir saga has brought senior chief selector Wahab Riaz under the scanner as he is selecting Pakistan team despite not retiring from T20 format and he will play in upcoming Pakistan Super League in February and March.
Also, Pakistan team Director Mohammad Hafeez is also taking active part in various franchise T20 leagues as a player.

These instances have raised some serious questions about conflicts of interests. Last year, PCB has asked senior chief selector Inzamam ul Haq to resign over conflict of interest issue. It would be interesting to see how PCB deals with this episode this time.
