Good News for the fans of Pakistani veteran all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez

ISLAMABAD - Good News for the fans of Pakistani veteran all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez.

Mohammad Hafeez has been cleared to bowl once again, after his action was found to be under the permitted 15-degree elbow extension.

The 39-year-old all-rounder passed the bowling action test, which he underwent on January 29 at the Lahore University of Management Sciences’ (LUMS) biomechanics lab, which is also an International Cricket Council (ICC) accredited testing center.

Hafeez had been suspended from bowling in competitions organised by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) after his bowling action was found to be illegal.

His action was reported by umpires during the Vitality Blast T20 match between Somerset and Middlesex at Taunton on August 30, 2019.

Following the report, Hafeez's action was tested at Loughborough University and the off-spinner's elbow extension was found to exceed the 15-degree limit, according to a statement by the ECB.
