Hafeez’s bowling action test report yet to come: PCB

Islamabad, Oct 27 (IANS) The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said the test report on the bowling action of off-spinner Mohammad Hafeez was yet to come from the biomechanics facility.

Hafeez was banned from bowling in international cricket in July 2015 for 12 months after his action was found to be illegal.

“Hafeez’s bowling action was tested at the biomechanics facility in Lahore and its report is yet to come. Once the report comes and if he [Hafeez] clears the test then PCB will contact the ICC for his official examination,” PCB chief operating officer Subhan Ahmed was quoted as saying by APP on Wednesday.

The 36-year-old who represented Pakistan in 50 Tests, 177 One-Day Internationals and 77 Twenty20s, has faced problems with his bowling action since 2014.
