Karachi: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB)’s CEO Wasim Khan is unhappy with experienced cricketer Mohammad Hafeez giving an opinion about players publicly.
Reacting to Hafeez’s opinion on Sharjeel Khan’s return to the national team, Khan told ESPNCricinfo that he will personally talk to Hafeez regarding this matter.
“I will be personally speaking to Mohammad Hafeez about that and I don’t think it’s his place to be doing it. He should be ‘focusing on his own cricket’ instead of giving opinions on ‘right and wrong’,” Khan said.
“No other player in the world does that so why should our Pakistani players do that? I don’t think they have any space to do that and I don’t think they should be doing that. That’s my personal view, the CEO added.
It must be noted here that Hafeez questioned Sharjeel’s return to competitive cricket. He wrote on Twitter: “Shouldn’t we set Standards of Dignity & Pride Higher than any other “Extra Talent” to represent Pakistan, Just Asking.”
