Mohammad Hafeez will serve the Pakistan cricket team as a batsman as he’s been banned from bowling over his suspect bowling action.
Pakistani all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez is all set to finish his international career at the end of this year. Before taking retirement from cricket, Hafeez is looking forward to partcipate in T20I World Cup, which takes place in Australia later this year.
The former Pakistan cricket team captain received his return call-up for Bangladesh T20 internationals. The right-hand batsman was quite hopeful for his selection for this home series.
“Well, it’s not a surprise to me,” Hafeez said. “I’m excited to be a part of the team again and will try my level best to add value to the team set-up. Obviously there are more youngsters than seniors, so it will be great for us to share our experience with them and let them express themselves in a way that they can perform better, and do well for Pakistan for a longer period of time.”
The 39-year-old last time represented his national side in a T20I in November 2018. He is currently without central-contract and set to play the games in front of his home crowd. Hafeez was part of Pakistan’s World Cup 2019’s campaign and was dropped due to his constant poor performances.
“I have always played cricket with positive energy, I participate in training sessions with positive energy, there’s no negative thinking in my mind. As a professional, yes, you have to perform.”
