Mohammad Hafeez, the skillful all-rounder, has been a great servant of Pakistan cricket. With a career spread over 16 overs, the veteran cricketer played 55 Tests, 218 ODIs and 89 T20Is. All this allowed him to gain a massive experience with which Hafeez has learned a lot and remains grateful to all those skippers who backed them to become the player he is today.
Recently, the 39-year old featured in an interview with Pakistani speedster Shoaib Akhtar where he reflected on his thoughts of a good skipper. In the dictionary of Professor, apart from winning, a captain’s major job is to develop players for future who can serve the team for many years to come.
Hafeez said that even if a captain wins a lot during his tenure, but fails to produce a sustained supply of good cricketers for future then he has been irresponsible as a skipper. This is an extremely important aspect of captaincy as it is imperative for the success of any country to have a plethora of developed cricketers waiting for their opportunity.
