Pakistan off-spinner suspended from bowling again

Hafeez suspended for illegal bowling action

Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez's bowling action has been found illegal again after he was suspended from bowling in global cricket by the ICC.

The 37-year-old was reported for using suspected banned bowling actions during the third one-day worldwide against Sri Lanka in Abu Dhabi last month.

Hafeez, 37, has been suspended on two previous occasions for the same offence and served a 12-month ban from July, 2015 after his action was found to be illegal for the second time in a two-year period.

Former chairman of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Zaka Ashraf on Friday expressed suspicion on England's Loughborough University's test report, which led to the suspension of all-rounder Muhammad Hafeez for his illegal bowling action. The offspinner underwent reassessment of his bowling action at the National Cricket Centre in Brisbane, and was cleared in November 2016.

This is not the first time the veteran Pakistani all-rounder has been banned from bowling in worldwide cricket. "Work harder on his batting", said Akram. They have risen to the top of the T20 rankings and won the Champions Trophy in June in some part because Hafeez was back bowling - his availability offered Pakistan not only control at one end, but the flexibility to choose a number of attack-minded, wicket-taking options.

It is pertinent to note here that Hafeez was first suspended from bowling in December 2014.

He said a lot of cricketers have been wasted by the PCB just because of mishandling.
