Veteran all-rounder, Mohammad Hafeez achieved a unique feat during the second T20I against West Indies. Hafeez became the only player in the world to bowl three maiden overs and also bat three maiden overs in T20I cricket.

Hafeez was named as the player of the match for his miserly bowling spell in the second T20I. He conceded only 6 runs and picked up a wicket in his four overs, helping Pakistan to defend their total and gain a 1-0 lead in the four-match series.

The 40-year old’s magical spell included 1 maiden over and 19 dot balls as he choked the opposition at the top of the order. Unfortunately for Pakistan though, Hafeez continued his poor run of form with the bat as he only scored 6 runs off 6 balls.

Commonly known as the Professor, Hafeez has been an integral part of Pakistan’s T20I side. He is Pakistan’s highest scorer in T20Is, having scored 2,429 runs at an average of 26.40 and a strike rate of 120.96 in 112 matches.

The middle-order batsman is more than handy with the ball in hand as well. He is currently the fourth highest wicket-taker in Pakistan’s history, having picked up 60 wickets at an average of 22.03 and an exceptional economy rate of 6.50.

Pakistan will be hoping that Hafeez quickly finds his form with the bat as he will be a crucial member of the squad for upcoming T20 World Cup.
