“Misbah performs his job with great dedication and is mentally very strong,” he said. “He (Misbah) is a very committed cricketer whether he is playing in domestic circuit or at the international level,” added Hafeez.It was just last week that both Hafeez and Misbah had held a joint press conference to deny any differences between the two players during the South Africa tour after former PCB chief Ijaz Butt had accused Hafeez of conspiring against Misbah.On Tuesday, Hafeez repeatedly stressed on improved playing conditions in Pakistan and said good bouncy tracks should be prepared in domestic matches in order to groom the batsmen for tough conditions in Australia and South Africa.Hafeez further said that holding of the President’s Cup one-day event could be a good build up for the players before the Champions Trophy scheduled to be held in England from June 4. “Playing under rules with two new balls from both ends is good preparation and experience for our players.
