I learned a lot from Hafeez: Babar Azam

ISLAMABAD: Pakistani skipper Babar Azam believes a memorable career has come to an end in the form of former all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez saying he had learned a lot from the Sargodha-born-cricket nicknamed Professor.
Former Skipper and veteran all-rounder Hafeez retired from international cricket on Monday, however, said to continue playing Pakistan Super League (PSL) and other cricket leagues.


Hafeez, announced his retirement from international cricket 18 years after making his debut in Sharjah against Zimbabwe on April 3, 2003. Hafeez has represented Pakistan in 55 Tests, 218 ODIs and 115 Twenty20s scoring 3,652, 6,614 and 2,440 runs in three formats, respectively.

 

Besides Babar, the whole cricket fraternity came to wish a happy retirement to the Professor. Former English county cricketer Alan Wilkins tweeted, “Hafeez, you have been a flag-bearer for Pakistan Cricket over the years you have worn your country’s shirt. Pride in the badge, pride in your own performance and maintaining the highest codes of honour in the game. Your presence will be missed by @TheRealPCB #Hafeez.”
