Mohammad Hafeez: What he said, really meant and definitely did not


Mohammad “The Professor” Hafeez Doesn’t Utter Nonsense

What he said (via The Independent):

“The reason is very simple: I don’t really speak nonsense.”

Mohammad Hafeez is The Professor to his Pakistani teammates because—as he puts it—he doesn’t “really speak nonsense.”

He is—to his colleagues—the best analyser in the side.

The 31-year-old is the third ODI player after Jacques Kallis and Sanath Jayasuriya to achieve the double of 1000 runs and 30 wickets in a calendar year.

Hafeez, though, considers himself a batsman first—his bowling is a welcome bonus.

Hafeez said:

Sometimes I laugh on it when people asked me whether I am batting or bowling all-rounder. Basically I am a batsman. You know my bowling is just a natural in me because as a batsman I can understand the thinking of a batsman. That is reason I bowl much better in ODIs. I believe on dot balls and that’s what I do and get wicket.

What he really meant:

“If my teammates say I’m smarter than them, well then, I must be. Thank you so much.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“What came first—the chicken or the egg?”
