March 24, 2023 / By Zunair Tahir / Sport News
Wahab Riaz, a Pakistani Test bowler, has been appointed as Mohsin Naqvi’s interim chief minister of Punjab’s sports and youth affairs advisor.
At his office in the National Hockey Complex in Lahore, Riaz met with the secretary for sports for Punjab, Shahid Zaman, and the director general for sports, Mohammad Tariq Qureshi.
In addition to providing a summary on forthcoming events and development work, Zaman and Tariq informed Riaz on future initiatives to promote athletics in the region.
The ex-cricketer-turned-administrator promised that he would do everything in his power to advance athletics in the region.
“To promote athletics in Punjab, we will endeavor to do everything we can. Children should step forward and engage in various athletic pursuits, “said he.
He continued, “We’ll make sure to use all the tools and involve everyone.”
Riaz was appointed sports minister in Punjab’s interim administration earlier this year, it must be recalled. The provincial government granted his request, and Riaz’s swearing-in event was postponed after he asked to participate in the just-completed eighth season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
After returning from PSL 8, the bowler is now serving as the sports minister’s advisor.
In PSL 8, Wahab played for Peshawar Zalmi under the leadership of Babar Azam. Wahab had a year-high 10 catches in 11 games. He has 113 catches overall, which makes him the PSL’s leading wicket-taker.
