WEB DESK: When the dust settleed down about the reluctance of accepting Muhammad Amir in the national training camp of 26 players, Muhammad Hafeez took to twitter to clear his stance on Saturday.
“I’m not the policy maker & I don’t take decisions. I have forgiven all by heart but my principle stance will remain always,” Hafeez tweeted.

On Wednesday, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) issued a press release in which the board appealed to all the cricketers and commentators who are opposing Amir’s return to the Pakistan team, to soften their stance as the tainted bowler deserved a ‘second chance.’
But, on Thursday, PCB’s effort to re-induct the fast bowler into the national squad found resistance when Muhammad Hafeez and Azhar Ali failed to report to the training camp reportedly in protest of Amir’s inculsion.
Later the incident, BBC Urdu reported PCB chairman saying that they have talked earlier regarding this matter to the team mates and they will talk again, but still if the team mates (Azhar and Hafeez) do not agree then the PCB will think about a disciplinary action against them.
“We will not take part in a camp which also includes Amir. We will not back down on our stance but are willing to discuss the matter with PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan,” Azhar was quoted as by a local media channel.
