Mohammad Hafeez: Bowling action clear after T20 Blast suspension

Mohammad Hafeez recently played in two T20 games for Pakistan against Bangladesh, but did not bowl in either

Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez has been cleared to bowl again in England after his action was reported following a T20 Blast game last summer.

The 39-year-old off-spinner was reported after playing for Middlesex against Somerset at Taunton in August.

And Hafeez was subsequently banned from bowling after a Bowling Review Group hearing at Lord’s.

His action, though, has now passed an independent assessment and he can bowl again in all competitions in England.

However, he does not, as yet, have a contract with a county for the 2020 season.

Hafeez made four T20 appearances for Middlesex last summer, taking two wickets and hitting 115 runs, with a highest score of 48.

The suspension only applied to England and Wales Cricket Board competitions, and he subsequently bowled in the Caribbean Premier League, Pakistan’s domestic T20 competition and the Qatar T10 League.

The assessment of his re-modelled action was carried out at a testing centre in Lahore and it was found he no longer exceeded the permitted 15-degree elbow extension.
