PCB requests ICC to test Hazeez’s bowling action
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has requested the International Cricket Council (ICC) to schedule a bowling assessment test for all-rounder Muhammad Hafeez in Chennai.
According to a source in the board, the PCB has written to the ICC to carry out a bowling assessment of Hafeez as soon as possible.
Hafeez, a batting all-rounder who bowls off-spin, was reported by match officials for having an illegal bowling action for the second time within a year during the first Test against Sri Lanka at Galle few days ago.
Under ICC laws, he has to undergo a bowling assessment test at <g data-gr-id="18">a ICC</g> accredited laboratory within 14-days and can continue to bowl during this period. If he fails the ICC test he can be banned from bowling for 12-months.
“The PCB is concerned with the situation with Hafeez and wants the test to be held as soon as possible in Chennai. Because they want a clear picture of where he stands,” the source said.
