The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) have requested the International Cricket Council (ICC) to test all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez’s bowling action in Chennai.
The PCB’s request comes after Hafeez was reported for a suspect bowling action for the second time within a year after the first Test against Sri Lanka in Galle on Sunday.
Under the ICC rules and regulations, Hafeez has to undergo an official bowling test within 14 days and could be banned for 12 months should his action be deemed illegal. However, until the results are officially released, Hafeez will be allowed to continue bowling.
Hafeez is currently representing Pakistan in the ongoing second Test against Sri Lanka in Colombo, but the 34-year-old is likely to miss the third Test in Pallekele due to the ICC bowling test.
