On the other hand, Hafeez further dissected Haider's technique and said that the 22-year-old had not changed yet.

"We were in New Zealand, and Haider was promoted as an opener in that series," Hafeez recalled while sharing his thoughts on a local sports channel. 

"On one of the balls, he just opened his legs wide and slogged the ball for a six on the leg side. I was like, how could an opener play like this? But, one of our coaches was clapping, and I asked him, 'do you seriously feel this is a good shot?'" the cricketer-turned-analyst shared. 

Hafeez suggested that the youngster must modify his approach. "There has been no change since the visit to New Zealand. He continues to perform the same action, "he said.

"If Haider wishes to continue playing for Pakistan, he must execute proper shots. He must recognize the circumstance and adjust his performance accordingly, "He concluded.

In Pakistan's opening T20 World Cup 2022 match against India, Iftikhar Ahmed's fifty set the tone for Pakistan before Haider walked to the crease.

However, Haider quickly gave up his wicket with an unnecessary shot. Pakistan lost two wickets in rapid succession, which halted its momentum.

India's T20 World Cup 2022 campaign began victorious with a four-wicket victory over Pakistan.
