Hafeez expresses sadness over Irfan Jr’s decision of not playing domestic season


Karachi: Veteran all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez has expressed his sadness over Mohammad Irfan Jr’s decision not to play the upcoming domestic season after being dismissed from the First XI squad.

The 25-year-old was ignored from the Southern Punjab’s First XI squad despite performing up to the mark in last season and offered a place in the Second XI squad which he declined.

Former captain Hafeez is hopeful that the pacer will reconsider his decision and will come to the field and showcase his talent.
