Mohammad Hafeez has praised the Indian domestic system where the young players have been groomed into better-finished products which were visible during the Border Gavaskar Series. Despite several players being injured, India went on to clinch the Border Gavaskar Series under the leadership of Ajinkya Rahane and Hafeez had pointed that the domestic system in Pakistan is not as good as in India which is one of the main reasons India had won the series.
“The reason why India came back from being bowled out for 36 and went on to win the series despite their captain not being available or so many players injured is because their new and young players are groomed properly into finished products. India’s products play international cricket and in Pakistan’s case only the talent does,” Mohammad Hafeez explained on a media interaction.
As A Fan Of Cricket, We Really Enjoyed That – Mohammad Hafeez
Mohammad Hafeez also admitted that the way India came back after the Adelaide test was really good and he enjoyed watching the recovery. Team India created history by winning a Test against Australia at the Gabba for the first time since 1988 and also chased down the highest score at the venue in the fourth innings.
“I enjoyed it that the team was down in morale but the way they came back and won the series after an amazing recovery is great. As a fan of cricket, we really enjoyed that,” added Mohammad Hafeez.
Mohammad Hafeez Needs Pakistan Young Talents To Be Groomed Properly
Mohammad Hafeez felt that Pakistan’s domestic setup is not taking care of the young talents as it should. He also clarified that Pakistan needs to build a better grooming system to allow the players to excel in the international stages. He was talking about the talents like Naseem Shah and Imam Ul Haq who burst into the scene very quickly but are now struggling.
“Unfortunately we don’t have a system which can make finished products which are now essential in modern-day cricket. That is why so many of our young players fail to succeed at the international level. We have to polish the talented youngsters and make them world-class players. In India, their domestic system ensures the talented players are groomed properly. But in Pakistan we don’t go through that process,” the former captain concluded.
Pakistan will host South Africa for a two-match test series and they will fancy their chances with the home conditions favouring them.
