    Mohammad Hafeez turns down domestic cricket contract for 2020/21 season

    Sources have confirmed to us that just like last year, Mohammad Hafeez will not sign a contract to play domestic cricket for 2020/21 as he feels that the money which would be given to him would be better spent on players who are struggling to make ends meet due to structural changes in Pakistan's domestic season, and that his conscience would not allow him to take such a contract for selfish reasons. He is expected to play domestic cricket without a monthly salary.

    As per sources, the Pakistan all-rounder has not had any disagreement with the PCB on this issue but merely stated his point of view based upon considerations mentioned above which is to do his bit for the welfare of deserving cricketers from all levels of cricket.

    He should think of that when heís in the national team. In domestic he should play to prove he is the best in Pakistan.

    To be honest, he's become too big for domestic cricket now. He should retire his Cricket with a BBL stint where there are high chances of him walking away with MOTT in the form that he's been in.

    good decision by him. Pcb might give him a retainer.

    Btw, this also shows that Imran Khan has created a huge problem. Hafeez is doing this so that some other player can get his contract due to unemployment that has taken place with new domestic structure.

    "DHAKOSLA".

    He must be contracted to SNGPL or one of the other departments, and as per the new clause of the PCB he needed to get an NOC from his department and he could get salary from either the department or the provincial team, he smartly chose the department (department's salary must be higher than the provincial salary).

    He is a very very shrewd guy, knows the pulse points of the desi journalist, they would have started singing his praises.

    But why would departments still pay money when their is no department cricket.

    Always been a smart bloke has the professor

    If only he could have translated that intelligence with a proper batting career, he would have been ranked alongside Inzimam and Miandad. Biggest waste of a talent in Pakistan cricket in terms of batting

    I don't really understand this agenda of media to portray him as some HERO giving his contract to some youngster.

    Hafeez was NEVER given a domestic contract by PCB, he's listed as an ADDITIONAL player for KP and PCB statement clearly mentions that additional players aren't centrally contracted but will receive match fees and other add ons as & when they play.

    At this stage in his career it makes more sense to become a gun for hire and play all the T20 leagues. More lucrative than playing in domestic tournaments and I'd doubt he'd have much interest in playing first class cricket. It's not like he will ever be making a comeback in Test cricket.

    Talking from Hafeez's point of view. Makes sense to me. Others may disagree as they're entitled. So whatever!

    Imran hasn't done anything. Nobody has the right to be entitled to a cricket contract, you have to be good enough to survive a restructure or look elsewhere.

    Firstly I doubt he was offered a contract, he's in reserves(but can play as & when needed) as is Malik & Wahab. Also, players need NOC from their employers i.e, departments in order to receive monthly retainers from PCB. So, again though I don't believe he wasn't offered any contract, Hafeez thought why go the hassle just take the pay cheque from department & get match fees, daily allowances & other benefits from PCB.

    To be fair to him I donít think is Pakistanis have ever appreciated. He was our best batsman for a few years and his bowling made him one of our most valuable cricket players for a while. He has been inconsistent and his stats donít reflect how talented he is. But he has always been selfless and always plays for the team. Seen him plenty of times approaching a milestone and not slow down for his milestone and still try to accelerate to get a good team total.

    He also gave up the captaincy without fuss and always played for the team.

    I think we will miss him more when he retires. I hope his chapter of his career end him on a high before he retires

    Doubt it. He has over stayed his welcome. Gotten more international games than he truly deserved. We will be fine without him.
