The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will send all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez to Chennai so that he can work on rectifying his bowling action, which was recently deemed illegal.
Hafeez was reported for a suspect action during the first Test against New Zealand in Abu Dhabi.
Hafeez is likely to travel to Chennai after the second ODI against New Zealand in Sharjah on Friday.
“We are sending Hafeez to a biomechanics lab in Chennai for unofficial testing and remodelling of his action,” PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan said. “He is being withdrawn from the ODI series and the replacement will be decided by the selectors.”
Khan added that Hafeez and spinner Saeed Ajmal, who was also banned from bowling, will “be sent for the ICC’s official testing by January 7”.
