Taking cognizance of media reports on few media outlets
Lahore–8 March, 2013: Taking cognizance of media reports on few media outlets that there was supposedly a disagreement amongst the think tank of Team Pakistan, in particular between skipper Misbah ul Haq and Mohammad Hafeez, with regards to the selection of the ODI eleven the PCB highups launched a thorough inquiry. The team management was contacted in South Africa, and it was discovered that no such disagreement whatsoever existed amongst the think tank, or between Misbah and Hafeez.
It is therefore stated for record that all such isolated reports in the media are baseless and inspired. And an attempt to demoralize the team. In fact, the management was exceptionally satisfied that at the commencement of the One-Day International part of the rubber on March 10, the entire Team Pakistan was united and motivated and its morale was very high.
