Mohammad Hafeez Interview: Former Pakistan cricketer Mohammad Hafeez is known as Professor in the cricketing world. Have you ever wondered why Mohammad Hafeez is called Professor? Professor Mohammad Hafeez himself has given the answer to this question to ABP. Actually, Mohammad Hafeez is currently playing Legends League cricket in Doha, the capital of Qatar. During this, an exclusive interview was taken of him in ABP, in which he spoke on many issues and had a funny story called ‘Professor’.
How did Mohammad Hafeez become a professor?
ABP asked Mohammad Hafeez that actually how did he get the nickname Professor and who gave it, did he teach in any university? To this question, Hafeez replied laughingly and said that, no, I did not teach in any university. This name is derived from the dressing room. When we used to come to the dressing room after playing matches, I used to talk about learning and understanding more about the nuances of cricket. Because of this everyone started calling me professor and once again while commenting on the live match, Rameez Raja mentioned this on air. Then, from there this thing spread all over the world and if the fans liked this thing, then you should be happy with whatever the fans like. So I am very happy with this niceness of mine.
