    I heard it was from his teamates in domestic cricket.

    It originated due to Hafeez's debate on various topics and his analytical nature.

    Apart from Babar and Fakhar I don't see any of our player deserve to be No.1
    Based on performance Hafeez should be in D, Amir, Shafiq C, Sarfraz, Azhar, Yasir, Malik B and no contract for Wahab, Shan, Rahat and Rizwan

    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!!!

    Unlikely!!!! Any other board would drop player like this attitude long time ago but PCB will bend to this guy most likely.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Lol post 2011 WC to about 2014 #1 all-rounder in LOI It's not like he achieved nothing in his career, it's just that after being banned from bowling he's become a tail-ender as a batsman and has harped on about the team's need for 'experience'.

    I said this in my previous post, #1 all-rounder post 2011 WC to about 2014. Don't get the wrong idea I'm not making him out to be this ATG of Pakistan cricket, I'm just saying it's not like he's done nothing in his career (as evident in being #1 all-rounder for 2-3 ish years). For me, and for most people on here, he's been more of a nuisance more times than not especially in regards to how high of a pedestal he thinks he's on. Please don't ask me to bring up stats, Hafeez isn't worth it .

    He's been at use ever since he returned back in 2010. People twist the past a lot.

    He had overseas problems but he still averages just under 40. Been the best opener since Anwar and could bowl a bit. Our standards for openers have been dreadful, a lot have come and go. At least Hafeez contributed significantly in asia, where his bowling was useful.

    In ODIs he averaged around 38, as well as being handy with the ball. Not earthshattering, but his output was the second best from a batsman after Misbah for much of Misbah's period. He even still featured amongst the best of our batsmen when his bowling was banned where he upped his average to 40 or so.

    I never buy the part where other young batsmen could have succeeded instead of him he had been dropped. We tried out so many players, and they haven't been able to stick their worth. When Hafeez was an automatic pick in the team, the youngsters were guys like Asad, Umar, Maqsood, Amin, Jamshed, Awais Zia, Khurram Manzoor, Latif etc. It's not Hafeez's fault that they didn't perform, and doubt most posters can even name batsmen from that era whom they thought would succeed and never tried. I remember in those days people were moaning how our best batsman Umar Akmal didn't bat at 4.Now look. Sure he can keep one batsman out, but he can't keep out the other 5 bats from the team.

    With so much bright talent which wasn't around years ago (Hasan, Fakhar, Faheem, Shadab, Hasan, Shinwari, Haris, Amir, all weren't around then for various reasons) you can't compare eras like that. Sarfraz wasn't around as Kamran kept him out of the team (an example of a player who actually kept someone out of the team). Malik too around that period literally went missing, his confidence was gone he looked like a tailender. So Hafeez was just amongst the best of the worst.

    Now with brighter, better and certainly more disciplined talent (unlike Jamshed, Umar, Sharjeel etc.) Hafeez isn't good enough. Plus he's got old. Which is why naturally he's finding it hard to get a spot in the team.

    It would have been nice if a senior had stepped up and started performing amazingly given how many games he had, but that doesn't always happen. And it rarely happens with the bat in Pakistan too. It's great for Pakistan that we finally have talent that can beat the average bat of Hafeez, but I find it strange how posters can blame he was the problem or did nothing in the team for all those years. He was one of the best performing players in that team whether or not that was down to him simply just outperforming the rest rather than being stellar. What it comes down to in the end whether you merit a spot in the team compared to team mates, squad and those in domestic. And for a large part of his career Hafeez did. It's more recently that he now doesn't, and that's coincided too with loss of batting form and older age.

    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.

    Hafeez was a good, not great player. He was a solid AR who should have been a pinch hitter down the order where he does well against spin. He was misused, but of course, he himself thought he was a world class player and his ego got the better of him. Pakistan cricket did him no wrong other than giving him more opportunities than he deserved.

    Why does he think he's an automatic pick for foreign leagues? The guy is a mediocre bat anyway, isn't remotely a big hitter, can't field at his age, and his effectiveness with his new bowling action is unknown.

    Who would actually take this guy? BPL? Afghan league?

    Hafeez has been nonexistent in the last year, and expectations are very low in the upcoming year as well

    He won't sniff the test squad, and at best will be 12th man for ODI and T20 teams on most tours

    On merit, he should be a category D contact. He's only B because of the strong seniority culture in Pakistan.

    Don't think Sethi will have time for him right now, he will be more concerned with losing the chairmanship at this point in time.

    How can he cry about B grade contract when Fakhar is also listed in that category. It's unfair for Fakhar to be not given an A grade contract and Hafeez on merit should be on C/D. Let's hope he retires, good riddance.

    Ego could end up leading to the destruction of his career. Just like how Yousuf and Razzaq destroyed theirs.

    These idiots didn't learn a single thing from Misbah. That guy even played a grade 2 tournament for the sake of his team.

    Hafeez needs to accept that his performance isn't at the same level as some of the players. He will have to take pay cuts.

    Also, the team management are always looking for a reason to drop a player and with Hafeez not taking a pay cut, the team managment have found a reason to kick him out.

    You could blame the Pakistani culture. Juniors making more money offends us.

    Its funny, because you look at the NHL, some great players have to take major pay cuts just for their teams sake.

    Hafeez needs to act wise. Don't give them reasons to remove him from the team easily.

    Thing is Hafeez needs to think right now, is it the money that he is after or the ego or the chance of playing the world cup?

    Even if he gets an A category contract and doesn't make the world cup squad, would he be happy? That would mean its all about ego.

    Best option for Hafeez is take the pay cut, even though he is not in contention of a 15 man squad, but still would make it into a 25. And would need to perform from the list of 25 to come back into the team.

    Not taking this pay cut, removes him from the 25 list, and allows another player to get his name in the list and work his way in the squad.

    Hafeez needs to think this properly, because either way he is not in contention for final 15

    Brady has taken numerous paycuts to bring in better players into the team. est example was the 2006-07 season when he took a paycut to bring Randy Moss and they had a stellar year. WIth 5 championship rings, he should have been highest paid player in the league, but he isn't in even top 10.

    Doesn't even make B contract on merit. Hasn't been performing in domestic either. The writing's been on the wall for some time really. Hafeez when on song, hit it cleanly, but pretty every single innings seems like struggle these days. Doesn't look classy at all even when he's played himself in now. Even his 60 odd and 80 odd scores in the recent NZ tour, it was really just him using his experience to pull through rather than being in touch. Which is why he failed in the other NZ matches too.

    Things have changed, it's not years past anymore. Hafeez's batting has declined, and we've had an influx of better batsmen come inn in recent years in Fakhar, Babar, Sarfraz, Haris. Imam and Asif are currently the next big things too. When you're the worst/2nd worst batsman in your going to feel pressure, you're going to face being dropped, and you're going to face going down in contracts. Back in the days where he was 2nd best bat in his team and bowled, he didn't really face that pressure.

    Probably time to retire, I don't see him coming back in the team. I mean we're struggling to fit in Haris Sohail into the ODI team atm let alone Hafeez.
