LAHORE: On his return from Bangladesh after crashing out of the World Twenty20 Cup, a disappointed national team captain Mohammad Hafeez took little time to point out his dissatisfaction with performances of himself as an individual and of the team in the tournament, Express News reported.

Speaking to the media at the Allama Iqbal International Airport in Lahore shortly after his arrival early on Thursday, the T20 team captain said their performance was not up to nation’s expectations.

Hafeez said that he believes whenever a team displays poor performance it should be questioned.

In response to a question whether he is ready to face the music before Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Najam Sethi, Hafeez said that an inquiry would be held to determine the factors responsible for Pakistan’s defeat.

The captain said he will present all his reports to PCB chairman in a meeting scheduled for Thursday.

“West Indies played exceptionally well in last five overs of their innings and made over 80 runs, that changed the momentum of the game,” said Hafeez.

Hafeez refused to comment on a question that whether he would play under the captaincy of all-rounder Shahid Afridi, saying he is not aware of any such statement.

On question whether he wished to remain as the T20 captain, Hafeez said it is upto the PCB who they appoint as captain and they are the one who had selected him to lead the side. “If PCB thinks I am performing my duties as captain well then they would retain me otherwise whoever PCB chose as the captain, we all would respect him.”
