Former Pakistan T20 skipper, Muhammad Hafeez said that blaming individuals for the defeats in the World T20 is not justified; he coined the debacle in the mega T20 event as a ‘collective failure’.
Muhammad Hafeez said while talking to media, “Pointing fingers at an individual is not fair. All of us failed at the World T20,”
He took the blame on himself as well saying, “I failed as well,”
Muhammad Hafeez also hailed the decision of handing over the captaincy band to Sarfraz Ahmed in the shortest format of the game and showed his intent to support his captain in all the situations.
The veteran Pakistani allrounder said, “The decision [to appoint Sarfraz] is positive and there is continuity about it,”
He further went on to say, “We will work together and take this team to a position where the fans want to see it,”
Muhammad Hafeez showed his support with the board’s decision. According to the Professor, every decision that is taken to improve Pakistani cricket should be supported on every forum.
He said, “Any steps taken with the intention of improving things should be backed,”
Recently, the board has dissolved the selection committee. On the other hand, the head coach, Waqar Younis has resigned from the post and the board is looking for a new coach for the team.
Pakistan has a long break from the international cricket for now; their next international assignment is a full tour to England. Pakistan will play four test matches, five One Day Internationals and a T20 international. The tour will commence on July 16.
