Pakistan batsman Sohaib Maqsood said veteran big-hitting all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez is a wicket-taker when bowling to left-handed batsmen.
Hafeez missed the recent National T20 Cup as he had been diagnosed with dengue fever.
However, he is part of Pakistan’s T20 World Cup squad and will be expected to play a big role with the bat, and perhaps the ball as well.

“Hafeez bhai is a wicket-taking bowler against left-handers, that [has] always been his role,” Maqsood said on Twitter.
Maqsood was supposed to represent Pakistan in the T20 World Cup, but he was ruled out of the tournament with a back injury and replaced by veteran all-rounder Shoaib Malik.
