Pakistan’s fast bowler Sohail Tanvir is aiming to be part of Australia’s high-profile T20 competition Big Bash League.

The left-arm pacer had signed a contract with Big Bash franchise Melbourne Renegades in 2015, but could not play in the competition due to his chance inclusion in the Pakistan World Cup squad.

The 32-year-old T20 specialist said he is now targetting the Big Bash again, which continues to break local sporting records with its popularity among fans Down Under.

Tanvir, who managed to get just two wickets in three T20 matches against West Indies, said those criticising his latest performance should not forget his contributions in the last two series against England and West Indies.

Tanvir is also among the most expensive players of the Caribbean Premier League 2017 and will be seen in action for Guyana Amazon Warriors later this year.

He played for Lahore Qalandars during Pakistan Super League 2017 and proved to be the best bowler for the franchise with 10 wickets to his name.
