Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez has been banned from bowling in English domestic competitions because of an illegal action.
According to a report in ESPNcricinfo, Hafeez, who had signed on mid-season as a replacement for AB de Villiers, had his action reported on August 30 after the T20 Blast match in Taunton between Somerset and Middlesex following which he underwent independent assessment at Loughborough University.
The 39-year-old contested the findings of the assessment, which held that his elbow extension for his off-break exceeded the 15-degree tolerance limit for bowling actions.
Hafeez, who last played for Pakistan in the ICC World Cup in July and featured in the T10 League recently in Doha, contested the findings of the assessment that observed that his elbow extension while bowling off-break to be exceeding the 15-degree tolerance limit.
As per ECB regulations, I am ready to appear for independent analysis at an ICC-accredited centre so that I become eligible to play in ECB-organised events,” added Hafeez, who does not currently have a contract with an English county for the 2020 season.
“That assessment, which was contested by Hafeez, found that the player’s elbow extension for his off-spin delivery exceeded 15 degrees as defined in the Illegal Bowling Regulations,” said an England and Wales Cricket Board statement.
“The player has been advised to correct his action. Until he is able to pass an independent reassessment of his action the player is not eligible to bowl in ECB competitions.”
Hafeez, a veteran of 218 ODIs, 89 T20Is and 55 Tests, was part of Pakistan’s 2019 World Cup campaign but has since not been offered a new contract by the national board.
