Pakistan opener Mohammad Hafeez was pleased with his century on Day 1 of the first Test against Australia in Dubai on Sunday. “I am very happy to come back into the team and perform like that. I prepared very well, the whole team had given me lots confidence in the practice sessions we had together. That really encouraged me a lot,” he said in the post-match press conference. Hafeez, a late inclusion in the squad after a double hundred in a domestic match, led the run-feast with a knock of 126 -- his 10th Test hundred -- during a 278-minute stay at the crease and put on 205 runs for the opening stand with Imam-ul-Haq, who made a career best 76.
