Hafeez initially suffered from food poisoning and made himself unavailable from the first few games of the tournament. Upon his arrival in Lahore, he underwent a few tests and tested positive for Dengue virus thus ruling him out of the first part of the tournament which concluded on Sunday at Rawalpindi.

The 40-year old is expected to make a smooth recovery and join his Central Punjab teammates in Lahore but the final verdict regarding his fitness and availability will be given after he undergoes the first few individual training sessions.

The experienced middle-order batter is part of Pakistan’s T20 World Cup squad and Pakistan national team management will be looking to integrate Hafeez in the National T20 Cup so that he can regain his match sharpness before the mega event, scheduled to be held this month.

The second phase of the National T20 Cup 2021 is scheduled to commence on 6 October at Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore. Hafeez’s side, Central Punjab currently sit at the third spot in the National T20 Cup 2021 points table with four wins out of their first six matches.
