Veteran all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez has once again expressed his desire to play the T20 World Cup at the end of this year, saying that he still has time at the top left in his body and runs in his bat.
“I want to play the T20 World Cup in October this year and after that I will bid adieu to international cricket with dignity and success,” he told to World Views Pakistan.
“I will, however, keep on playing T20 leagues around the world.”
Hafeez said he has not made up his mind on what he’d be doing once he leaves the game completely.
“After I have quit the sport completely, only then will I decide what to do. I’ll see where life takes me: be it coaching or something else.”
Hafeez will turn 40 by the time of World T20. He has not been a regular in Pakistan’s T20 sides in the last few years, although he did play in the latest series against Bangladesh where he fared quite well, scoring a half century in the second match of the series.
