Hafeez takes dig at PCB for promoting Shadab and Nawaz in middle-order

Former Pakistani cricketer Mohammad Hafeez has talked about the promotion of Shadab Khan and Mohammad Nawaz to number four and five, respectively, in the batting order. The spinner duo was seen batting in the middle order on Saturday's game versus New Zealand.

Hafeez, who announced retirement earlier this year, mentioned that although the strategy worked today, but is not a good choice to opt for in the long term. He feels there will be negative consequences of it since the actual middle-order batters will feel useless in the team.

His tweet reads,

Promotion of @76Shadabkhan at no 4 & @mnawaz94 at no 5 can give short term success but wil put more pressure & doubts in the minds of middle order batters. Why they r there for??? If no confidence on them then why they r with the team?? Middle order wil remain an issue…
