Pakistan’s experienced allrounder, Mohammad Hafeez will undergo a bowling action test soon as the PCB has written a letter to the International Cricket Council (ICC) to fix a date for his bowling action test.

A PCB official told Dawn News, “PCB had contacted ICC and requested to fix a date for re-testing of bowling action of Hafeez”

“Bowling action test is likely to happen in Loughborough England,” the official added.

Hafeez was banned in July 2015 for a year after his bowling action was found illegal for the second time since November 2014.

The 36-year old allrounder had been a key component for Pakistan as he was extremely handy with the ball as well as a capable batsman at the top of the order.

He has represented Pakistan in 50 test matches, 177 50-overs game and 77 T20 internationals. But, he is currently out of the side due some fitness issue and his poor form with the bat.

Mohammad Hafeez was dropped for the West Indies series and he has been overlooked for Pakistan’s tour to New Zealand as well.
