Former Pakistan cricketers willing to work even in toilets if PCB employs them: Tanvir
Former Pakistan fast bowler Tanvir Ahmed believes some of the Pakistan players are willing to work even in toilets if they get an opportunity to work with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
Tanvir, who played five Tests and two ODIs for Pakistan has given a controversial comment on a GTV sports show claiming that some of the former Pakistan players are desperate to work with the board no matter what the position is.
“It is my personal opinion what is wrong with that. I believe some of our former players are so desperate for employment opportunities in the board they would even work in the toilets,” he said.
The former fast bowler has been bashed by fans on social media after giving the comment and urged him to show some respect for elders or his colleagues.
Ever since Tanvir became a full-time expert and cricket analyst on television channels, he has been on the spotlight several times due to his offensive and controversial comments.
The 40-year old also question Pakistan’s chief selector Inzamul-ul-Haq’s ability and also claimed that he doesn’t see him as a legend.
“What legendary work has Inzamam done as chief selector tell me. I don’t rate him as a legend,” Tanvir said.
During last year’s Asia Cup, Tanvir also came into the spotlight and faced a lot of criticism and hatred after he claimed that the Indian captain Virat Kohli declined to play the tournament due to fear, although he was rested.
