Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez has revealed that “people would call me mad” for wanting to play cricket as a career.
Hafeez noted that they also “thought that I would never make it to the national team”.
However, he is glad that he was able to prove them wrong and show that someone from a small town like Sargodha can go on to play international cricket for Pakistan.
“When I used to practice and train, people would call me mad,” he was quoted as saying by the Gulf Times. “They thought that I would never make it to the national team. I had no qualms about it because they had never seen somebody from their area going to the international level.”
