Pakistan’s T20 specialist Sohail Tanvir is upset with the irresponsible use of social media by some of his fellow gamers.
“I think that our former and current players need to be very thoughtful and sensible while using the social media because we could all end up only giving off a negative impression of Pakistan cricket,” Tanvir mentioned in an interview on Friday.
“I think former and current players need to be more responsible on social media.”He mentioned remarks made on social media at occasions can show to be embarrassing for the gamers and likewise for Pakistan cricket.
A Twitter spat between former Pakistan gamers Danish Kaneria and Faisal Iqbal with each working one another down and acerbic feedback by former Pakistan captain Muhammad Yousuf in regards to the nationwide group head coach and chief selector, Misbah-ul-Haq, have been some of the happenings on social media which has led to controversy.
Even former officers of the Pakistan Cricket Board will not be immune from this development with at the least one former head claiming some gamers below-carried out within the 2003 World Cup and he requested the chief selector to drop stalwarts like Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis and Saeed Anwar.One former Chairman felt that Pakistan board had by no means taken the difficulty of match and spot-fixing critically sufficient.
Tanvir, a left arm pacer who has appeared in two Tests, 62 ODIs and 57 T20 Internationals, mentioned the onus was on the gamers themselves on how they wished to use the social media.
He mentioned it was unlucky that some cricketers are utilizing the social media platforms to have a go at one another disregarding the truth that the gamers are all half of one household.
“A thoughtless comment or remark can cause embarrassment for the user and otherwise when they meet each other the next time. I would suggest that they don’t say things on social media which they wouldn’t say face to face or which they wouldn’t like others to say about them.”
