Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez has dismissed speculation that he won’t be available for the T20 series against South Africa.
This comes after reports said that Hafeez would miss the series due to the T10 League in Abu Dhabi.
However, the league will be held from January 28 to February 6, while the three-match T20 series between the men in green and South Africa will run from February 11 to 14.
“I’m fully available for the T20I series [against South Africa] as my priority is always playing for Pakistan,” Hafeez was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.
“I was also given NOC for T10 League because it would not clash with Pakistan’s international commitments. I will also comply with all the bio-secure bubble requirements.”
Pakistan’s series against South Africa, which will consist of two Tests and three T20 Internationals, will start on January 26 and conclude on February 14.
Pakistan’s squad for the South Africa series: Abid Ali, Abdullah Shafique, Imran Butt, Azhar Ali, Babar Azam (captain), Fawad Alam, Kamran Ghulam, Agha Salman, Saud Shakeel, Faheem Ashraf, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Rizwan (vice-captain), Sarfaraz Ahmed, Nauman Ali, Sajid Khan, Yasir Shah, Haris Rauf, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Tabish Khan
