Reports suggest that M. Hafeez aka “Professor” is not very happy with the support staff for giving him a cold shoulder during the recently concluded One Day International (ODI) series against Zimbabwe where he did not feature in any of the games.

Despite being around for a reasonable period of time now, Nawaz is yet to come of age. He once again failed to capitalize fully on whatever opportunity he was provided with in Zimbabwe.

After having recovered from the injury Imad Wasim is all set to make an international comeback next month. Nevertheless, Shadab Khan has most definitely made the most out of the opportunity that he has had while batting at number seven during Imad’s absence. The southpaw then might make it to the squad but by no means will his be a case of an automatic selection in the playing eleven.

Moreover, the coach too does not seem too happy with the 29-year-old’s commitment and fitness levels and hence, Imad if selected will have to be on his A-game as he is in no position to afford a yet another poor show!
