    He should accept the contract, lucky to get a B could easily have been in C category. Perhaps he knows he is in the team only until the World Cup and wants to earn top dollar at least until then.

    This is the attitude and mentality that exists within Pakistan in all organisations.

    Seniority asking others to bow down to them regardless of what they have ever done or achieved in their field.

    The only Test playing nation where he would get an A contact is Zimbabwe. I don't believe even Bangladesh would offer him an A contract. Judging by his ego, it looks like he believes he is some kind of a Pakistani legend, and has been unduly humiliated by being demoted to the B category. Boy, judging by the number of matches you have played in your career, you have been the luckiest Pakistani cricketer since Rameez Raza. What surprises me is that why the PCB offered him an A category contract for so long? Were they out of their bloody minds?

    I didn't think Hafeez would be the sort of guy to have such a big ego. He has had issues in the past related to his actual cricketing form but not really with discipline.

    KARACHI: Veteran all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez has decided not to sign the central contract for the year 2018-19 after being demoted from category A to B on Monday.

    Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced the list for the next year on August 06 in Lahore where the 37-year-old was the most notable demotion in the list of 33 players.

    Hafeez may not justify selection in team, but he deserves better treatment

    Hafeez, who has represented the Men in Green in 50 Tests, 200 ODIs and 83 T20Is, where he collectively scored 11,224 runs with the help of 20 centuries, 55 half-centuries and also claimed 239 wickets, has had a difficult last year where he was once again reported for his bowling action and also lost his place in the limited overs side.

    The decision to demote Peshawar Zalmi all-rounder was reportedly taken by Director Cricket Operations Haroon Rashid, Chief Selector Inzamamul Haq, Director Academies Mudassar Nazar and was approved by PCB Chairman Najam Sethi.

    According to the sources, Hafeez has decided not to sign the contract and also considering an option to make himself unavailable for the national team selection in the future.

    “Hafeez has decided to question the board why he was demoted to category B,” a source close to Sargodha-born right-hander confirmed The Express Tribune. “If he don’t get any satisfactory answer, then he is considering making himself unavailable in future for the team selection and will part ways with the national team without taking official retirement.”

    The source added: “He will be talking to the board in the next two days. If their response isn’t satisfactory, than Hafeez he will prove selectors wrong by his performances on the pitch in the foreign leagues.”

    Hafeez recently made a comeback in the Men in Green’s squad in the recently concluded T20I and ODI tour of Zimbabwe, but his participation remained limited to only two matches in the 20-over format.

    Nothing wrong with that, PCB should just tell him the ones in the A category currently are more deserving of him. He is setting the wrong example by doing all this as if its insulting to be in B Category. Its should be a matter of pride for all cricketers to be selected in any of the categories.

    Quite intelligent actually - MoHa always was street smart; just too ordinary as cricketer to be a great Captain. He wants to play internationals as free agent as per his schedule. He was benched for most part in ZIM, for which he left his T20 contract in Canada.

    Going forward, I think as last be as Arthur is there, this is going to be his future. Net net, Cat A contract probably makes financial gain (even for carrying drinks for whole tour), but not from lower categories. He is PAK international for 2 decades now and still has lots of market value in T20, T10, 5/6 a side cricket ...... which is going to be his future destination. Besides, umpires hardly call bowling action in PLs & SLs, hence he’ll be among top players in such leagues.

    Ideal opportunity for the PCB to set an example.

    If they give into profs demands then future players will also see this, just like Hafeez saw it from YK (I assume), and pull the same thing. Do the right thing PCB!!!

    When is he going to bring a lawsuit against PCB for denying him from his rightful (in his mind only) place? That is the only thing left.

    Subcontinent victim mentality doesn't allow a graceful exit most of the time.

    There are reports that he did not play the 5th ODI in Zimbabwe as protest for not getting a game earlier. No wonder he looked upset.

    Desis and their nakhre will never go away. He should get his A contract back through hard work. Instead he cries - should be shown the door anyway.

    He doesn't deserve to be in Category B let alone A. This man needs to retire ASAP. Hopefully PCB will do the right thing and take him out of the entire central contracts.

    Mohammad Hafeez considers retirement in protest

    LAHORE: Pakistan's senior batsman Mohammad Hafeez is reportedly considering retirement in protest against his recent demotion in the players' categories by the Pakistan Cricket Board, local media reported on Tuesday.

    Local media quoting sources close to the right-hand all-rounder said that Hafeez considered the demotion an insult to him because he had been performing up to the mark to win several honours for the country, reports Xinhua news agency.

    Hafeez, 37, had been a regular recipient of the PCB's top category contract, but the board on Monday replaced him with a young rising star, Babar Azam.

    The PCB dropped Hafeez from category A to category B in the annual central contact given to players for a period of one year.

    Hafeez has played 50 Tests, 200 One-day International and 83 Twenty20 International matches for Pakistan during his career which started in 2003.

    "Hafeez felt upset over the decision, and now he is disillusioned due to discriminatory treatment and, as a result, cannot continue to keep on playing. Mohammad Hafeez will not sign the central contract," local media quoted the sources as saying.

    During a five-match series against Zimbabwe last month, Hafeez refused to play the fifth match of the series after he was included in the team for the first four matches of the series.

    According to sources, Hafeez has expressed strong reservations over the new contract which demoted him to the second tier category.

    On Monday, the PCB had announced new central contracts for the upcoming year July 2018 - June 2019 by including a total of 33 players across five categories of the central contract. National team captain Sarfraz Ahmed, Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Amir, Yasir Shah and Babar Azam were included in Category A.

    Ahmed Shehzad, who was provisionally suspended for testing positive for a banned substance, failed to get a central contract.

    The PCB also announced 25 to 30 per cent increase in the monthly payment for each of its categories and also raised its players' match fees by 20 percent across all categories.

    Probably one of the last dying breed of cricketers who rely on blackmail and the media to fuel their chances of getting back into the team. He could do a good job as a lower order hitter with Malik and Fahim but I feel Asif Ali is a better choice when it comes to finishing the innings. It depends on how Mickey feels about his usefulness but Pakistan has way better young talent than him at the moment.

    Sad way to go if he retires

    Will be remembered as a selfish cricketer, hopefully, he finds his inner nirvana and rectifies this situation (if these reports are true).

    How ungrateful, I was just talking about him being lucky to still have a contract before this news story came out, and now we hear this.

    Shows how selfish he is. He should be glad he is even getting a B contract. Most other countries would have dispatched of him years ago.

    I hope he retires.

    At this point, it may be best he does retire so selectors aren't basically forced to make a mistake going forward. He is 37 years old at this point, there's not much more left for him to give and if he is not going to be on WC squad, there is little reason to select him for upcoming tours.

    I think Agha Salman is really worth giving a longer look if Pakistan want that offie allrounder.

    It's an insult to a senior and a global cricket icon like Hafeez to be bracketed in same pay tier as newcomers like Fakhar Zaman -- after all the 'Little Master' Hafeez has been performing for years and has been there and done it all for 15 years.. you have to a player of the highest calibre to last that long at the top level.

    I agree totally with Hafeez on this one, nothing less than retirement with immediate effect here, it's the only way to protest this travesty of justice.

    Assuming the quoted sources are 100% valid, then Hafeez is going out in very sour fashion. He has done wonders for Pakistan over the years of his career but unfortunately in recent years out went professionalism and in came ego. If there was one individual who proved that seniority culture ended up being a low key bullying culture, it was Hafeez.

    Are you serious? Limited people get a Category A contract and you want to give it to someone who's not even a first team player?

    Not like Hafeez won't have a career after this. He's nicknamed the Professor, guarantee he'll be a coach or a commentator in 5 years

    This very thread shows hypocrisy of Pakistani fans.

    We are accused of disrespectful towards our legends but in this thread, most us are disrespecting the legend.

    May be he is shadow of what he was once upon a time but none the less, he deserves better treatment according to your own standard which you hold when criticizing us.

    Wise decision. He will enjoy playing leagues now + earn more money.
