Mohammad Hafeez (born 17 October 1980 in Sargodha, Punjab) is a Pakistani cricket player, who plays all forms of the game and a former T20I captain of Pakistan cricket team. Hafeez usually opens the batting and forms part of the bowling attack. In 2012–2013, he was ranked as the top all-rounder by the ICC Player Rankings in T20 format. He is known for his intelligent batting but also for aggressive shot plays when needed. He was involved in record opening partnership of 224 runs with Nasir Jamshed. As a player, Hafeez gives the team plenty of options: he usually bats aggressively at the top of the order, but his organised technique also means he can switch to defensive mode if required. As a bowler, he bowls fast and flat for a spinner, but often used as an economical bowler to restrict run rates, while getting through his overs quickly.
