Another day and another blow to the Pakistan Cricket Board. Mohammad Hafeez who was a member of the Pakistan Cricket Boart Crickert Technical Committee, has stepped down from his post. This major development was made by former captain of Pakistan Cricket Team Mohammad Hafeez when the team was preparing for the upcoming World Cup which is going to take place in neighbor country India. The decision of Mohammad Hafeez to resign from his position came after Pakistan’s shameful performance in the 2023 Aisa Cup. In fact, Pakistan was the host of the tournament this year. However, Pakistan could not make it to the final of the tournament. Ahead of the ICC Men’s ODI World Cup, the Pakistan team has to tick all the boxes whether it is about the team’s full-strength squad, playing XI, and supporting staff.
Mohammad Hafeez Resigns From PCB’s Cricket Technical Committee
Mohammad Hafeez aka The Professor, was serving as an honorary member of the Cricket Technical Committee for the PCB, alongside his former teammates Misbah-ul-Haq and Inzamam-ul-Haq. As per the reports, three friends, Inzaman, Misbah, and Hafeez reported to the Pakistan Cricket Board chief Zaka Ashraf and suggested the welfare and betterment of Pakistan Cricket. Shockingly, Mohammad Hafeez came forward with a decision to step down as the honorary member of PCB’s CTC on Thursday, September 21, 2023.
This decision of Mohammad Hafeez confirmed his break up with the Pakistan Cricket Board. The veteran cricketer took to his social media handle to reveal his decision to quit the Cricket Technical Committee. However, Hafeez expressed his gratitude to the PCB chief Zaka Ashraf and sent his best wishes to Pakistan Cricket. The former all-rounder wrote, “I decided to leave Pakistan cricket technical committee. I served as an honorary member. I would like to thank Zaka Ashraf Saab for giving me this opportunity. I’m always available whenever Zaka Ashraf Saab needs my honest suggestions for Pakistan cricket. My best wishes for Pakistan cricket as always.”
Who will replace Mohammad Hafeez on CTC?
Mohammad Hafeez spent only two months while working as an honorary member of the Cricket Technical Committee. Therefore, his sudden resignation from the post has left many questions unanswered for the cricket fans and PCB as well. It is still yet to be decided who will replace Mohammad Hafeez in the committee. Kindly note that PCB has to announce its final World Cup squad in a couple of days.
