Lahore. Mohammad Hafeez believes that Pakistan’s team is not yet ready for the T20 World Cup to be held in Australia. From the batting to the bowling of the team, there is still weakness in the bowling. The T20 World Cup (T20 World Cup 2022) is to be held in October-November. In the tournament held in UAE last year, however, he had a good performance and the team reached the semi-finals. Although he was defeated by Australia here. Later, the Kangaroo team also captured the World Cup title for the first time. The Pakistan team led by Babar Azam defeated India by 10 wickets in the league round. For the first time in the history of the World Cup, the team was successful in defeating the Indian team.
Talking to ARY News, former Pakistan captain Mohammad Hafeez said, I hope and pray that Pakistan’s team performs well in the World Cup. But according to me, there is a lot in the team right now considering the conditions in Australia. He said that we have not done well in Australia. According to me, our middle order is also not right now. Talking about bowling, only Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf are performing well. But they also do not have much understanding about the conditions there. So according to me, the team will face a lot of challenges.
Players get enough chances
He also advised the Pakistan Cricket Board. He said that I think that a good combination of the team should be made and the team should be formed in the next 5-6 months. The players who have been decided to be sent to this mega event should be given enough chances. He said that the players who have cemented their place in the team should be kept in the team even after their poor performance. This will give confidence to the players.
41-year-old Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez was included in the team in the last World Cup. Although his performance was not good. Regarding his retirement, he said that I have always served Pakistan and played cricket to earn respect. I have decided that this is the right time to withdraw from cricket in a respectful manner. Hafeez said that I want to give a chance to those players who are waiting for their turn.
