Hafeez suspended over illegal bowling action

"I have chose to not go to Bangladesh to play for the Comilla Victorians and instead I will remain in Lahore and work on my bowling action before taking a biomechanics test again at a ICC accredited laboratory", Hafeez said.

Hafeez was reported during the third ODI match against Sri Lanka last month in Abu Dhabi, and had undergone an independent assessment of his bowling action on 1 November at Loughborough University.

In a statement released the ICC said, " The assessment revealed that the majority of his deliveries exceeded the 15 degrees level of tolerance permitted under the regulations.

Hafeez suspended for illegal bowling action

Hafeez has been suspended for the third time by the International Cricket Council (ICC) with immediate effect for his illegal bowling action after failing in a biomechanics test in England.

He can apply for a reassessment after modifying his bowling action. This is the third suspension from bowling in global cricket for Hafeez.

Hafeez, the top-ranked all-rounder in ODIs, was also suspended in November 2014 and given a year ban in June 2015. Hafeez's bowling adds value to his batting, having taken 136 wickets in 195 one-day internationals. He was cleared to bowl in 2015 after he had remodeled his action. However, a few months later, his action was reported during the Galle Test versus Sri Lanka. There is the possibility of a T20 series against West Indies in Pakistan in March, but otherwise they are not scheduled to play any global cricket until the tour to England in May.
