After Saeed Ajmal, another Pakistani suspended over illegal bowling action as ICC confirmed that Mohammad Hafeez bowling action is illegal and he has been suspended from bowling in international cricket with immediate effect. The International Cricket Council today confirmed that an independent analysis has found the bowling action of Pakistan’s Mohammad Hafeez to be illegal. The analysis revealed that all his deliveries exceeded the 15 degrees level of tolerance permitted under the regulations.
It said that Hafeez, who was reported after the first Test match against New Zealand in Abu Dhabi last month, can apply for a re-assessment after he has modified his bowling action in accordance with clause 2.4 of the Regulations for the Review of Bowlers Reported with Suspected Illegal Bowling Actions. The analysis was performed on 24 November by the ICC’s accredited team of Human Movement Specialists using the National Cricket Performance Centre, Loughborough.
