Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez has once again been reported for a suspect action following the conclusion of the first Test against Sri Lanka in Galle.
Hafeez took two wickets during the match, which Pakistan ended up winning by 10 wickets.
Hafeez will now have 21 days to get his action tested at an accredited International Cricket Council (ICC) bowling centre. However, should his action be deemed illegal, Hafeez could be banned from bowling for one year as it is the second time his bowling action has been reported within a period of 12 months.
The 34-year-old was first reported for a suspect action after the first Test against New Zealand in Abu Dhabi last November. His action was found to be illegal when he had it tested at Loughborough University in England as his elbow extension was measured at 31 degrees, which is more than double the limit of 15 degrees.
After undergoing extensive remedial work in Chennai, Hafeez was finally cleared to bowl again on April 21.
