Does he think of becoming a coach after retirement?
When a player enters the age of late 30s, it is thought that he is heading towards the end of his career and thoughts regarding retirement must be starting to get in his head. Well this was not the case with Sohail Tanvir right now, as he clearly said that he is targeting the upcoming T20 World Cup in India. “I am targeting both the upcoming T20 world cups, and afterwards I will give it a thought that when I am retiring”, Sohail Said.
Thoughts on becoming Purple Cap holder in the First Ever IPL?
Sohail Tanvir was the Purple Cap holder in the first ever season of IPL. He took most wickets in that year’s IPL and certainly made the entire Pakistan Proud. Sohail Tanvir revealed that he didn’t realize at that time that how big was this achievement. “I was new in International Arena at that time, I didn’t realize about how big that achievement was at that time, but now I feel proud on it”, Sohail added.
