Pak T20 captain Hafeez to play for Melbourne Renegades in Big Bash League

Islamabad, Oct 27 (ANI): Pakistani all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez has agreed to a Big Bash League contract with the Melbourne Renegades and is likely to miss the first two games of the tournament due to international commitments.

According to The Daily Times, Hafeez is currently Pakistan's leading run scorer in T20Is with 1093 runs, and has led the Pakistan T20 squad since June 2012 to 12 victories out of 18 matches.

He last toured Australia in 2005, and had a poor run averaging just 12.50 in six ODIs, the report said.

He most recently featured for Guyana Amazon Warriors in the inaugural Caribbean Premier League (CPL), the report added.

Hafeez is currently training ahead of his departure to the UAE for the limited-overs leg of the South Africa tour, which begins on October 30, the report further said. (ANI)
