English county signs Sohail Tanvir for T20 competition

LONDON: Pakistan’s left-arm seamer Sohail Tanvir has been signed by English club Somerset to play in this year´s domestic Twenty20 competition, the T20 Blast, the English county side announced on Thursday.

 The county director of cricket Matthew Maynard  said “Sohail is a quality top-order bowler and a dangerous lower-order batsman,”.

The director added that “There is no doubt he will be an extremely useful addition to the squad and he is an experienced international cricketer who will provide us with something a little bit different.”

Talking his experience with the Pakistani seamer he said  “I worked with him at St Lucia Zouks and he was our star performer so I am looking forward to teaming up with him again.”

Tanvir, 30, has made 170 domestic and 42 international Twenty20 appearances and has previously played in England with Hampshire.

His figures of six for 14 for Rajasthan Royals during the 2008 Indian Premier League stood as a bowling record in the game´s shortest form until Somerset´s Arul Suppiah took six for five three years later.
