Hafeez picked up Brian Lara, Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohi, Saeed Anwar and AB de Villiers as his top five batsmen on quizzed by a fan. Though some believe, Anwar could have been replaced by some like Kumar Sangakarra.

On the work front, will retire from cricket after T20 World Cup 2020. He has already retired from Tests. “After World T20 I have decided I will retire from international cricket and just focus on playing in T20 leagues,” he said.

“It could be coaching, I don’t know when the time comes I will make up my mind,” he said.

Hafeez has appeared in 55 Tests, 218 ODIs and 91 T20 international. He made yet another comeback to the Pakistan team for the T20 series at home against Bangladesh in February after the national selectors had ignored him after the World Cup last year in England.
