Hafeez reacts on ECB’s decision to ban him from bowling


Mohammad Hafeez accepted the England Cricket Board (ECB)’s decision to ban him from bowling in all their competitions despite identifying a few errors in Review Committee’s report.

In a statement, Hafeez confirmed that he has received a report from ECB’s Review Committee related to his bowling action which was reported back in August this year during Vitality Blast. Hafeez represented Middlesex in this year’s season as a mid-season replacement of South Africa’s AB De Villiers.

“There are a few flaws in the report but still I have accepted their report,” said Hafeez whose bowling action was reported during a county match. “ECB’s review committee has also identified the errors in their report,” he added.

Hafeez is ready to undergo a bowling Test at any ICC accredited Testing center. “I am ready to undergo a Test to clear my bowling action,” he said.

It must be noted here that Hafeez has been reported, suspended and cleared multiple times since 2005 when his bowling action was reported for the first time. He had recently got a green signal form ICC in May 2018 to bowl once again in international cricket after his reassessment report came out positive.
