Hafeez banks on bowlers

Pakistan captain Mohammad Hafeez exuded confidence that his mixture of pacers and spinners can pose questions to the Indian batsmen in the two-match T20 series and three-match ODI series, which begins with a T20 here on Tuesday.

“Indian batting is well known all over the world for being extremely good. But winning or losing does not depend only on batting. Bowling will also have a major role. When we see our team, both batting and bowling is very good. So, our bowlers can negotiate the strong Indian batting line-up,” Hafeez said on Monday.

Hafeez said his trump card Saeed Ajmal is bowling very well at the moment and is doing the job for him.

“We want him to stay at the peak. We don’t want to put too much pressure on him. At the same time, other bowlers also have to take wickets to give confidence to him,” he said.
