Veteran all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez said he is already a big fan of Abdullah Shafique, who is gaining attention all over Pakistan for his performance in the National T20 Cup.
Shafique is representing Central Punjab in the tournament and is currently the second-highest run-scorer with 282 runs in eight matches, which includes a century and a fifty, at an average of 47 and a strike-rate of 133.01.
The 20-year-old actually scored his century on his T20 debut, which came in Central Punjab’s match against Southern Punjab.
He smashed an unbeaten 102, which came off 58 balls and included 11 boundaries and four sixes.
