Sohail Tanvir pulled out of a contract with Australian side Victoria after doctors advised him to rest an injured knee. Tanvir was due to play for the Bushrangers in the Australian Twenty20 tournament but he has instead informed the Australian side of his unavailability, on medical advice.
"Tanvir had to pull out of his contract with Cricket Victoria, as he has been further advised by doctors to make sure his knee injury is properly healed," a statement from his agents said.
They added that the healing process may need two to three weeks.
Tanvir, who last year turned out for South Australia in the event, has recently recovered from back trouble and a knee injury which forced him out of the Pakistan team.
Tanvir has so far played two Tests, 31 One-dayers and 15 T20 internationals for Pakistan since making his debut in 2007.
