According to The Dawn, Hafeez said that Pakistan carry forward the confidence of their 2-1 one-day series win in South Africa last month, saying that it was a big motivation to win in South Africa for the first time and they carried that momentum in UAE.

Hafeez scored another match-winning 113 not out in Pakistan's successful chase of 226-run target, his third hundred in the series, and he became the sixth batsmen in all one-day cricket to score three hundreds in one bilateral series and the first Pakistani to do so behind legendary Zaheer Abbas, the report added.
