In his short stint so far as Pakistan's T20 captain, Mohammad Hafeez has shown several admirable qualities as a leader, though the odd question of his own form invariably pop up. He is also forthright in his views. Having experienced rejection more than once, Haffez never complained or blamed anyone for his early exclusions. He made himself better and returned, writes Osman Samiuddin in the National.
"There are some, not everybody. I always listen to professional criticism whose purpose is correction. See, you have to be criticised if you don't do well but it needs to be constructive. But there are guys in Pakistan who are debating cricket who haven't ever gone to a shop to buy a bat or ball."
He insisted that I write this down. "It is an unfortunate scenario that such nonprofessional people have a platform where they can sit and say whatever they want about anyone without any accountability."
