A day after being demoted from Category A to B in PCB’s list of centrally contracted players, veteran cricketer Muhammad Hafeez is reportedly considering retirement from international cricket, media reported.
Hafeez, 37, had been a perennial recipient of the Pakistan Cricket Board’s top category contract, but that changed when his place in the highly exclusive group of six was given to rising star Babar Azam.
“Muhammad Hafeez will not sign the central contract.”
Perhaps to add credence to the “discriminatory” argument, the official recalled that coach Mickey Arthur had dropped Hafeez in the first four matches of last month’s ODI series against Zimbabwe.
“Hafeez had then refused to play the fifth match in protest,” the official added.
The 2018 Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) annual conference is scheduled for April 8 to 11 in Boao, Hainan Province. The forum will be themed "An Open and Innovative Asia for a World of Greater Prosperity."
