The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is not satisfied with the statements made by veteran all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez regarding his elimination from the International Cricket Council World Cup 2015 but has decided to disregard the matter because of the ICC World Cup.

A senior board official told PTI that they just do not understand what these players need. Mohammad Hafeez knows very clearly the result written in his medical report yet he went and made some unjustified statements in front of the media.

He said the medical reports on Hafeez had declared distinctly that he needs minimum 3 weeks to recuperate from his calf injury and that there was no certainty he would remain fully healthy in the World Cup.

The official said that he has also stated he would have been fit for play in 10 to 12 days. Acknowledging it as “Rubbish” he added that they are ignoring the issue but they will have a quiet talk with him because of the World Cup and they do not want any unwanted debates.

Hafeez was sent back to Pakistan after the medical report disclosed that the player would need minimum 3 weeks to recuperate from his calf injury but on Thursday Mohammad Hafeez told reporters that he could have healthy in 10 to 12 days’ time.

He got injured on 3rd February while their game against India is on 15th February, so he would have regained his fitness level. But the team management called him and told that they have asked for his substitution.

He said he was disheartened at missing the ICC World Cup as he had practiced and prepared himself mentally and physically for the mega tournament for the past 4 years. The official said that some of the senior players apparently required to be more sensible in making comments and in their behaviour.

The official was quoted saying: “Even when Saeed Ajmal was working on his bowling action with Saqlain Mushtaq who was hired by us specifically for this purpose. At one time Saqlain came to us and asked us whether he was helping out Ajmal or it was the other way round.

“Saqlain was upset that instead of listening to him Ajmal was giving him bowling tips,” the official said and added “We than had to have a talk with Ajmal.
