He said that being a Test cricketer is his degree.
While disagreeing with the remarks of PCB chairman, Hafeez said that education is very important for everyone but getting degrees is not enough in the life.
Earlier talking to newsmen in Quetta, the PCB chairman said that: “There is no graduate player in the team right now except Misbah-ul-Haq and the absence of educated players in the team is a primary reason for its recent downfall.”
