Karachi: Pakistan's T20 captain, Mohammad Hafeez has urged the cricket authorities to prepare more sporting wickets in domestic cricket so that batsmen are better equipped to go and play in different conditions abroad.

"It wouldn't be bad if we have more sporting pitches in our domestic cricket. I mean bowler friendly pitches which can test the batsmen," Hafeez told reporters here on Tuesday.

"We struggled recently in the Test series in South Africa as we did not get enough chance to play on seaming pitches with more bounce. The fact that we are now playing most of our series abroad means we need to prepare such wickets here in Pakistan," said the all-rounder.
