Mohammad Hafeez, a seasoned all-rounder for Quetta Gladiators, stated on Sunday that he wants to prove his selection by succeeding for his side in the current Pakistan Super League (PSL) and sharing his knowledge with the team’s younger players.
The all-rounder replaced Ahsan Ali, the Gladiators’ injured opener batter, in the roster.
The right-hander praised the Gladiators’ management for letting him participate in PSL 8 in an exclusive interview with Geo News.
While describing the rivalry between Quetta and Peshawar, Hafeez noted that the two teams have always given each other a hard time and that many of their games have been close.
He stated that he anticipates another gripping story on Monday.
Quetta, according to Hafeez, has a very good mix of foreign and domestic players, but he emphasised that local heroism is essential to any team’s success in the PSL.
“Our regional power is also substantial. Iftekhar Ahmed is a member of our team. Everyone is appreciating Sarfaraz Ahmed’s captaincy, and Naseem and Hasnain are bowling brilliantly,” the seasoned all-rounder observed.
Saim Ayub and Ehsanullah were mentioned by Hafeez as promising young players for PSL 2023. Abdul Wahid Bangalzai, according to him, is another brilliant player who can succeed given the right circumstances.
Hafeez responded that everyone should respect opponents when asked about recent comments made by some players about rivals.
“It’s critical that athletes show respect to their peers, teammates, and rivals. Nobody will respect you if you don’t respect your coworkers, Hafeez said.
