Sri Lanka Premier League will help us in T20 WC 2012 : Pak's Cap
Pakistan's Twenty20 captain Mohammad Hafeez feels his side will have no trouble getting into the groove quickly during next month's Twenty20 World Cup as most of the team's players have managed to get a fair idea of the conditions after competing in the Sri Lankan Premier League.
"Most of Pakistani players in the T20 World Cup squad are in the SLPL and two venues in SLPL (R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo and Pallekele International Stadium in Kandy) will host the T20 World Cup and so it will help us. We will get into the groove easily," Hafeez, who plays for Wayamba United, said in an interaction.
Asked about the absence of Indian players in the SLPL after the BCCI did not permit them to participate, Hafeez said, "It would have been great to have seen not only the Indian players but also other big international stars who were to take part but could not."
T20 is an unpredictable game and so I don't want to predict anything."
Besides Hafeez, Shahid Afridi, Abdul Razzaq, Shoaib Malik, Kamran Akmal, Umar Gul, Shoail Tanvir, Saeed Ajmal, Umar Akmal and Imran Nazir were part of the SLPL though they have departed now for national duty against Australia starting next week.
