Former Pakistani Test pacer Tanveer Ahmed, known for making controversial statements every now and then, has once again made it to limelight for saying some former Pakistani cricketers would be willing to work “even in toilets” if they get a chance to work with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
“It is my personal opinion that some of our former players are so desperate for employment opportunities in the board they would even work in toilets,” he said while speaking to an Indian media outlet.
Ahmed, who represented Pakistan in five Tests, a T20 International and two ODIs from 2010 to 2013, gained a lot of prominence due to his controversial comments since becoming a full-time expert and cricket analyst on television channels.
Last year when the Asia Cup was held in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Ahmed earned the wrath of fans worldwide on social media when he said that Indian national team captain Virat Kohli had “run away from the tournament”.
The 40-year-old was recently in the news when he had accused Inzamamul Haq of nepotism in selections and ignoring deserving domestic performers to promote his nephew, Imamul Haq.
He had also questioned Inzamam’s position in Pakistan cricket, saying, “What legendary work has Inzamam done as chief selector? I don’t rate him as a legend.”
