Yesterday, it was announced that left-arm pace sensation Wahab Riaz is the new sports minister of Punjab. The left-hand pacer is also a part of PSL 8. He appeared in international cricket for the last time in 2020. He is now a part of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL), playing from Khulna Tiger.
This news created a sensation on social media. People began to express their thought about this appointment.
One Twitter user tweeted,
“Very interesting to know that Wahab Riaz will be the sports minister in Punjab. Should we congratulate him? I am confused”
Another user showed his confusion and amazement with these words,
“Wahab Riaz will be the first ever sports minister who will be playing the PSL 😂”
Rahid Lateef said to him, “good luck.”
It was a big responsibility for him to prove his words about the rehabilitation of cricket and other sports in Punjab. Before the ministry, he was a strong critic of sports policies around the country.
