Muhammad Hafeez Cleared to Bowl for International Cricket by ICC


Muhammad Hafeez has been cleared to bowl by the International Cricket Council (ICC). After reassessment and remedial work, bowler hafeez’s bowling action found to be legal.

Pakistani cricketer, Muhammad Hafeez, has had many objections against his bowling action. The first one came up in a test series back in November 2014, after which he was suspended from bowling in December of 2014. He was re-assessed and permitted to resume bowling in April 2015.

Hafeez was again suspended from bowling in July 2015 for 12 months. He was re-assessed and permitted to resume bowling in International cricket in November 2016. Hafeez was reported third time during the Abu Dhabi ODI against Sri Lanka in October 2017. He was suspended in November 2017 after an independent assessment revealed that his bowling action was illegal.

Muhammad Hafeez underwent yet another re-assessment of his bowling action at the Loughborough University in England on April 17, 2018. There it was revealed that the amount of elbow extension in his bowling action was within the 15-degree level of tolerance permitted under the ICC illegal bowling regulations.
