“My issue with Shaheen is that he is not only a product of Pakistan, but of the entire world. The entire world wants to see him. We must provide proper care for him “Hafeez stated this in a video he posted on Twitter.
“There was an official post about what I read and heard over the last few days. So I believe wasting this time period of 4 weeks, 6 weeks, or 8 weeks – since the time he was injured – is a criminal act “He continued, saying
“We need to look after a product like Shaheen, who is not just Pakistan’s but the world’s, and we have more such cricketers who have a global fan base. This is why I believe they have finally realized and sent him to England “Hafeez went on.
“I believe they should have made this decision when he was first injured. They should have resolved their findings immediately and sent him to the best rehab facility in England or elsewhere “He stated.
