Pakistani all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez trusted to conjecture that he was sent back home from the International Cricket Council World Cup against his desires after a dispute with the team management as he said that he could have recuperated from his injury problem in time for the biggest cricket event which is starting from 14th February.

Hafeez told reporters that he would have recuperated from his ankle injury in a week or 10 days-time span to be available for the International Cricket Council World Cup. 

He said that the team management felt in a different manner and eliminated him out of the World Cup for him it is the management’s decision and it is for the best.

Mohammad Hafeez, who returned to Lahore this week, was injured in Napier on 3rd February, during the second One Day International against New Zealand. He was recently suspended by the International Cricket Council from bowling due to a unlawful bowling action but was selected in the World Cup team as a batsman only to be sent back home later after his ankle injury. 

He added that he had always given his hundred per cent for Pakistan team in every part and so it was a forlorn situation to be not able to participate in the ICC World Cup.

Hafeez said that he is very sad to miss the ICC World Cup. Hafeez further said that now he would first want to recuperate from his ankle injury and then try to get his bowling action passed. Conjecture has been ubiquitous that Hafeez had some dispute with the team management when he asked them to rest him for the warm-up games in New Zealand.

A source told PTI that apparently Hafeez wanted to concentrate on getting his new bowling action cleared by working out in the nets for the International Cricket Council bowling assessment test but bowling coach Mushtaq Ahmed and head coach Waqar Younis felt in different manner.
