Pakistan all-rounder Sohail Tanvir has asked former and current players to be more responsible on social media.

In a blog for pakpassion.net, Tanvir stated that remarks on social media can lead to embarrassment for the cricketers.     

“Of course, how we all use social media is dependent upon our personalities and how much public exposure we wish on ourselves, but we need to be careful,” said Tanvir. “In this regard, I feel that cricketers using these platforms to have a go at each other need to be careful because we are after all a close fraternity and unsavoury remarks about each other can lead to embarrassment when we do come face to face one day.”

“In fact, they should simply follow my suggestion of not saying things on social media which they would not want others to say about them!” he added.

The Multan Sultans’ cricketer also said that it will be difficult for players to keep themselves in shape during a period of no cricket, due to the ongoing coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

“Whilst one sincerely hopes and prays that the world will be free of the menace of the Coronavirus very soon, we must also recognize that the resumption of cricket will not be easy for many players to adjust to,” he said. “Of course, this all depends on individuals as to how they make use of this time but there is a real danger that some may be completely out of shape when action finally resumes in the future.”
