Wahab Riaz, the newly appointed Advisor to the Chief Minister of Punjab on sports and youth affairs, visited cricket grounds in Lahore to assess their condition. As a former cricketer himself, Wahab is eager to improve sports facilities in the province.
Expressing his disappointment over the poor state of local cricket grounds in Lahore, Wahab immediately directed the authorities to upgrade the facilities. He is committed to working towards the betterment of sports in the province and plans to visit different sports facilities to ensure that sports thrive in the region.
Wahab Riaz, who represented Peshawar Zalmi in the recently concluded Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 8, has urged all athletes to come forward with their concerns. He has assured them that his office is open to them and he will do his best to resolve their issues.
As a part of Punjab’s caretaker government, Wahab was named as the sports minister. He had requested the provincial government to allow him to play in PSL 8 before taking his oath. After fulfilling his PSL commitments, he has now taken charge as the advisor to the chief minister on sports and youth affairs.
Wahab’s commitment to improving sports facilities in Punjab is a positive development for the province. His experience as a cricketer and his passion for sports make him an ideal candidate for the job. With his leadership, we can hope to see a significant improvement in sports facilities in the province, which will benefit athletes and sports enthusiasts alike.
