PakPassion.net has received confirmation that Pakistani left arm bowler Sohail Tanvir will not be playing for Surrey this season.

It was widely reported that Tanvir who has represented Pakistan on 46 occasions mainly in the shorter versions of the game was due to sign for the London based County, who have been represented in the past by Pakistani cricketers such as Waqar Younis, Saqlain Mushtaq, Abdul Razzaq and Shoaib Akhtar.

However PakPassion.net has today received details that the deal has fallen through due to problems with Tanvir not being able to get the required Visa.

Sohail stated that "I'm very disappointed as the opportunity at Surrey would have been a great chance to further develop my game and to get some match practice ahead of the Champions Trophy trial matches".

It's a major blow for Tanvir who has been a huge success in Twenty/20 cricket especially for the Rajasthan Royals and especially given that he had a very disappointing Twenty/20 World Cup. The stint with Surrey would have presented Tanvir with the perfect opportunity to once again catch the eye of the Pakistani selectors.
