Former Pakistan cricketer Mohammad Hafeez criticized the PCB’s selection policy after their T20 World Cup loss, alleging favouritism in player recalls.

Former Pakistan cricketer Mohammad Hafeez criticised the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) following their disappointing loss to India in the ongoing T20 World Cup. Pakistan’s chase of 120 runs fell short by six runs, leaving them in danger of failing to qualify for the Super 8 stage.

Hafeez, in a viral video, targeted the PCB’s selection policy, particularly regarding the recalls of Imad Wasim and Mohammad Amir. He alleged that “deals” were made to bring these players back from retirement, questioning their commitment to domestic cricket.

“They [PCB] brought them here out of greed and made deals with such players who have ruined Pakistan’s cricket. I was in the domestic circuit, but no one wants to play domestic cricket because they were telling me, ‘Hafeez bhai, if any of us gets selected, we will take it. How can it be that players who don’t even play Pakistan’s domestic cricket get selected?'” claimed Hafeez.

Hafeez further questioned the timing of the players’ availability, suggesting they prioritised leagues over national duty. “When asked six months ago to play for Pakistan, they said they wanted to play in leagues. Now that there are no leagues happening these days, they are playing in the World Cup. They are playing in the World Cup as if it were just another league,” he added.

Pakistan currently sits in fourth place in Group A after two defeats. They must win their remaining matches against Canada and Ireland with a high run rate and hope for favourable results elsewhere in the group to qualify for the Super 8 stage.
