Dropping two catches in two overs best way to get over Champions Trophy hangover: Hafeez


LAUDERHILL, FLORIDA – Pakistan and St Kitts and Nevis Patriots all-rounder Mohammed Hafeez has confessed that dropping back to back catches in two consecutive overs was the best way to get over the Champions Trophy hangover.

Hafeez who dropped two sitters in his side’s four run win over Guyana Amazon Warriors on Sunday said he has always embraced reality checks.

“Of course I’m grateful that we haven’t played any cricket since the Champions Trophy win in June, which has allowed us to stay in king mode on the seventh sky, it is a pleasure to reconnect with the ground,” he said while talking to The Dependent.

Hafeez added that he was also happy to get run out, which allowed him to get back in the ‘complete feel’.

“I also notice Babar slowing things down at 3, Kamran Akmal struggling to build on starts, Mohammed Sami getting dispatched all over the park… it’s great that normal service is resuming.”

Hafeez also expressed gratitude over the fact that the reality check has not come in an international match.

“We’re not yet ready to come down to earth wearing the green just yet,” he said.
