Mohammad Hafeez Suspended Over Bowling Action.
All-rounder Mohammad Hafeez was suspended for an illegal bowling action the International Cricket Council said yesterday, becoming the second Pakistan player after Saeed Ajmal to face sanction in the past three months.
Hafeez, 34, had his action reported during the first Test against New Zealand in Abu Dhabi last month.
The ICC said that it has confirmed that an independent analysis has found the bowling action of Pakistan's Hafeez to be illegal and, as such, the off-spinner has been suspended from bowling in international cricket with immediate effect.
The ICC also said that Hafeez can apply for a reassessment after he has modified his bowling action in accordance with the rules.
