The release of Hafeez from the Peshawar Zalmi roster this year made Hafeez the favoured pick.
Since the first season, other teams retaining their local captains had left the Qalandars short on options. But for the upcoming fourth season, they had a wider pool of Pakistan players to pick with Misbah-ul-Haq and Shahid Afridi being other options.
Hafeez, recently retired from Test cricket, has played 248 T20 matches, scoring 5244 runs at a strike rate of 122.35. He captained Pakistan in T20Is between 2012 and 2014 and stepped down following the team’s exit from the group stage of 2014 World T20 in Bangladesh.
Hafeez’s overall T20I record stands at 18 wins from 29 matches.
