Hafeez asked fans to send in some questions on Twitter for a Q & A session and answered few of them. However, the star all-rounder seemed to be irked by one of the users after he asked when will the Pakistan cricketer hang up his boots.

PCB Managing Director Wasim Khan cleared that only those cricketers who can represent Pakistan in different formats in the next 12 months have been considered for the contracts, giving clear indications that Malik and Hafeez do not feature in their future plans.

“The PCB have set high standards and targets in its strategic plan for the upcoming season. We want to attach a high value to receiving a central contract.
