Mohammad Hafeez

Recent reports reveal that Mohammad Hafeez, who served as the Director of the Pakistan men’s national team, has not been paid his dues by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) since the conclusion of his tenure a few months ago.

Hafeez’s appointment as the director, initially under Zaka Ashraf, was meant to span a four-year term with the team. However, his stint ended prematurely within just a couple of months when Mohsin Naqvi assumed leadership at PCB.

During Hafeez’s tenure, the Pakistan men’s team faced challenges, failing to achieve notable results in away series against Australia and New Zealand. They suffered defeats, losing 0-3 in the Test series against Australia and 1-4 in the T20Is against New Zealand.

The period also witnessed significant changes in team leadership, with Babar Azam stepping down as captain. Shan Masood led the team in Tests, while Shaheen Afridi captained in the shorter format.

Amidst rumors of new coaching appointments under Naqvi’s leadership, including Gary Kirsten for white-ball formats and Jason Gillespie for Tests, the issue of Hafeez’s unpaid allowances from the two tours remains unresolved.

Hafeez, who was expected to bring stability to Pakistan cricket as an administrator, had a distinguished playing career, amassing 12,780 runs and 253 wickets across 218 ODIs, 119 T20Is, and 55 Tests. However, the turmoil within the board hindered his efforts to replicate his on-field success in an administrative role.
