Former Pakistan all-rounder Yasir Arafat has heaped praise on Mohammad Hafeez for his “fearless and innovative” performances in T20 cricket as of late.
Yasir’s comments come after Hafeez carried the Pakistan team on his shoulders when they batted during the second T20 International against New Zealand on Sunday.
Hafeez smashed a career-best 99 not out, which came off 57 balls and included 10 boundaries and five sixes, as Pakistan finished on 163/6.
Even though Pakistan lost the match by nine wickets, Yasir said Hafeez “showed once again how to bat in a T20”.

“Mohammad Hafeez showed once again how to bat in a T20. Fearless and innovative,” he said on Twitter.
In 2020, Hafeez has been in red-hot form in T20 Internationals as he has scored 374 runs in nine matches at an average of 93.50.
The third T20 International will be held in Napier on Tuesday.
