ICC suspends Hafeez again over illegal action

Mohammad Hafeez

Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez has been suspended from bowling in global cricket with immediate effect by the ICC, after his action was found illegal in an independent assessment.

After the assessment, it came to light that he had exceeded the 15 degree level of tolerance as permitted according to the ICC regulations.

Even though Hafeez was gutted by the news, the 37-year-old insisted that he will remedy his action and get it re-tested to ensure he can continue to have an impact with both the bat and ball.

Wasim Akram has told Mohammad Hafeez to give up bowling and concentrate on his batting after being suspended for an illegal action for a third time.

Under ICC rules, though this is the third time he has been suspended from bowling in three years, he will be able to return to bowling as soon as he has rectified his action and passed another assessment.

This is not the first time the veteran Pakistani all-rounder has been banned from bowling in global cricket.

The former World Cup-winning fast bowler said that there is no confusion that Pakistan need Hafeez's all-around skills as he served the national team very well.

Hafeez underwent a test on his action at the ICC accredited centre in Loughborough on 1st November and as a result, all his deliveries were found to be exceeding the permissible 15 degree limit.

Hafeez was suspended after his action was cited in November 2014, but returned in April 2015. Assessments once again showed that his action was illegal and was banned from bowling for 12 months, which is the ICC penalty if a bowler's action I found to be illegal twice in the previous 24 months.
