Injured Hafeez to miss February 6 test

Friday, 06 February 2015 - 8:50

The PCB has asked the ICC to push back the date of the official test on Mohammad Hafeez's bowling action due to a niggle on the bowler's foot.

The new testing date is expected to fall after February 10th, putting further doubts on Hafeez's availability for bowling in Pakistan's World Cup opener against India.

Hafeez was due to fly to Brisbane today, for the test from Sydney where the Pakistan team is currently based, but will have to wait for the new test date.

Having been suspended from bowling, Hafeez can only bowl if cleared but he remains a part of the Pakistan World Cup squad and can play solely as a batsman.
