Mohammad Hafeez withdraws from BPL

KARACHI: Pakistani all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez has withdrawn himself from the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League after being suspended from bowling following an independent assessment of his bowling action found his action to be illegal.

Hafeez confirmed that he has decided against going to Dhaka and joining his BPL team Comilla Victorians for the remainder of the league.

“I will stay here and work on my bowling action,” Hafeez said.

Hafeez was earlier scheduled to leave for Dhaka on Friday to join the team Comilla Victorians for the remainder of BPL matches. He was picked by the team as a genuine all-rounder but the ICC's decision meant that he wouldn’t have been able to contribute with the ball.

The bowler has now requested the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to assign a coach to work with him to remodel his bowling action so that he can apply for a reassessment as soon as possible.
