PESHAWAR, November 19: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to send the national team player, Mr Muhammad Hafeez, to London on 24 November. He has been referred to International Cricket Council Laboratory on an account of doubtful bowling action.
The PCB has declared that Mr Muhammad Hafeez cannot take part in the third test match with New Zealand, starting from 26 November. He would return back to United Arab Emirates (UAE) for one-day matches after his action is cleared.
The umpires objected to his bowling in the first match between Pakistan and New Zealand during the ongoing event.
Saeed Ajmal, one of the spin bowlers of Pakistan, had also been criticised for his bowling action, due to which he has been ruled out of cricket for past several months.
He had taken tests beforehand as well, where he argued that he injured his elbow in a car crash and that is why he is unable to straighten his arm.
Reports say his case is unusual because his elbow can rotate sideways in delivery unlike that of any other bowler. Recently, he underwent the process; however, he has not been cleared yet.
