The captain of the Twenty Twenty team of Pakistan, Mohammad Hafeez is of this opinion that the team will hardly have any problems getting in sync at the World Cup that starts this month as most of the Pakistani players have got an idea of the Sri Lankan conditions after having participated at the Sri Lankan Premiere League. The Wayamba United player, Hafeez has said that the players have become accustomed with the two pitches that would be hosting the Twenty Twenty World Cup 2012 in Sri Lanka, viz., the Pallekele International Stadium of Kandy and the R Premadasa Stadium of Colombo, as they have had enough action in these two fields during the Sri Lankan Premiere League. He has also added that it was a good thing that they were given permission by the Pakistan Cricket Board to take part in the Sri Lankan Premiere League as that had been valuable practice for the upcoming World Cup.

The captain expressed his wishes of winning every single match of the ICC T20 World Cup with his team but he also said that since the game is so unpredictable, it would not be wise to make any prediction.

Other players who had been present in the team during the Sri Lankan Premiere League are Shahid Afridi, Shohaib Malik, Abdul Razzaq, Kamran Akmal, Saeed Ajmal, Shohail Tanveer, Imran Nazir and Umar Akmel but they are presently out for playing against Australia.

The Pak skipper has said that he is still a fan of the five day version of the game but he feels the twenty over cricket has its own charm and that it is a good platform for the youngsters to prove their cricketing skills.

The all-rounder has also expressed his desire to be a part of the Indian Premiere League and other major leagues of T20.
