Wahab Riaz has been included in the interim cabinet of the Punjab government.
After Imran Khan, cricketer Wahab Riaz has also entered the political scene. As the Punjab assembly was dissolved recently, an interim cabinet was appointed today to oversee the affairs of the government.
However, the most unpredictable name to be included in the cabinet is Wahab Riaz, who had recently expressed his determination to return to the national team but is now caretaker minister of Punjab.
Reacting to the news, Punjab’s new caretaker minister Wahab Riaz told ProPakistani that he learned about his cabinet induction on television. While he was happy to join the government, he said he is currently playing in the Bangladesh Premier League and will not be able to take oath now.
Wahab Riaz is expected to take oath as caretaker minister later due to his foreign league commitments. The experienced pacer achieved the milestone of 400 T20 wickets in the current BPL season.
