ICC suspends Mohammad Hafeez from bowling

ICC suspends Mohammad Hafeez from bowling

Hafeez can apply for a re-assessment after modifying his bowling action in accordance with clause 4.5 of the Regulations.

The ICC said Hafeez can still bowl in domestic cricket events played under the Pakistan Cricket Board.

The assessment, according to an ICC release, revealed that a majority of Hafeez's deliveries exceeded the 15 degrees level of tolerance permitted under the ICC's regulations.

Zaka said a good number of talented cricketers ended their careers either because of match-fixing or illegal bowling action, which is clear proof that the PCB lacks expertise in handling the players.

There seems to be circus going on as far as suspect bowling actions in world cricket are concerned as evident by the banning of Pakistani off-spinning all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez.

Even though Hafeez was gutted by the news, the 37-year-old insisted that he will remedy his action and get it re-tested to ensure he can continue to have an impact with both the bat and ball.

The right-handed batsman had only resumed bowling again last December after completing a year ban and reassessment of his bowling action at the National Cricket Centre in Brisbane. He was reported in November 2014 for the first time.

Hafeez was suspended after his action was cited in November 2014, but returned in April 2015. Just 2 months after that he was once again reported for illegal action during a Test against Sri Lanka at Galle.
