Hafeez will be out for 4-6 weeks:

“Tests revealed that his thumb was fractured and he needs surgery. Subsequently, he will be out of action for 4 to 6 weeks. Hafeez is being released from the Qalandars squad and a replacement will be sought to cover his place,” said the statement by Lahore Qalandars.
