Pakistan’s veteran all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez reckons prolific batsman and limited-overs skipper Babar Azam should bat in the middle-order as to try different things.
Hafeez, who was also appointed Pakistan T20 team captain back in May 2012, shared his opinion that the star batsman should bat in the middle-order to try different things.
“I think in the upcoming series against Zimbabwe, we should try a new opening pair. It will help us evaluate the prospect of other opening batsmen in the domestic circuit. I believe Babar should come lower down the order,” Hafeez, who has scored 2,147, runs in 94 T20s, said while talking to a private news channel.
Hafeez, who scored 6,614 runs in 218 ODIs, believes that the Pakistan team management should give chance to youngsters in the upcoming series against Zimbabwe.
