The global pandemic caused by coronavirus has cancelled all cricket matches across the globe. Due to this, players have been restricted to stay at their homes without going out. While some players are keeping themselves busy by doing household works, others are using this time to interact with their fans on social media. Meanwhile, Pakistan cricketer Mohammad Hafeez decided to have a Question and Answer session with all his fans on Twitter.
A fan took this opportunity and asked Hafeez who were the top 5 batsmen in the world according to him. “Your top 5 batsmen in the world?”, the fan tweeted. The Pakistan all-rounder decided to select only one Pakistan batsman among his top five. There was one West Indian, two Indian and one South African batsman in the list.
Your top 5 batsman in the world?

Mohammad Hafeez has been in the news due to his Twitter question and answers sessions with fans. Recently, a Pakistani fan asked him about Sharjeel Khan’s comeback into the national team. Khan was involved in spot-fixing scandal a few years back.
During the interaction, Hafeez asked his fan if dignity was the something on which the players should be selected in the national team first rather than just some extra talent. This comment created a little controversy as the chief of Pakistan cricket also came in. He said that Mohammed Hafeez should not make such comments going around on social media about youngsters.
Mohammad Hafeez, who recently made his international comeback during T20 Series against Bangladesh, is likely to retire after the ICC men’s T20 World Cup which is supposed to be played in October and November. He has been involved in the game for Pakistan since 2003. Many people might not know this but Hafeez was once part of an IPL team. He played for the Kolkata Knight Riders in the first edition after which all Pakistani cricketers banned from the IPL.
