Sohail Tanvir expressed gratitude and feels honored for the opportunity extended to him by the Chairman PCB Management Committee Zaka Ashraf.
Sohail Tanvir said, “Being appointed chairman of this committee is a huge responsibility and I am looking forward to this exciting challenge.”
He added, “We’re committed to nurturing young talent and creating a path to success, starting with selecting the U19 squad for the upcoming ACC U19 Asia Cup as our first step toward building a formidable team for the ICC U19 World Cup next year.”
