Sohail Tanvir's much-talked about deal with the English county Surrey has failed to materialise due to visa problems.
Tanvir, who was axed from the Pakistan team for ODI's in Sri Lanka following a dismal show in the T20 World Cup in England, was supposed to play for Surrey for rest of the season for a reported deal worth 75,000 pounds.
"Yes I didn't get the required work permit and visa on time so the contract has fallen through. It is very disappointing to me," Tanvir said.
Tanvir said he had been looking forward to playing for Surrey as the same an opportunity to improve his fitness and recapture his rhythm with the ball.
"Playing in English condition would have really helped me come back into form and into the Pakistan team as well," said Tanvir.
Meanwhile, the left-arm speedster's agent Salman Ahmed has also been going through bad times for allegedly telling Indian news channels that he has complained to PCB about Indian bookies approaching players in Colombo.
Ahmed though blamed the news channels and has denied that he ever said this and accused the Indian channels of twisting facts and misquoting him.
"The Indians channels have put me in an tight spot with their unethical reporting," he claimed.
