Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez will not be allowed to bowl in international matches after the International Cricket Council (ICC) found his action to be illegal.

Hafeez was reported for a suspect action after the third ODI against Sri Lanka in the United Arab Emirates last month.

Following a test at Loughborough University, Hafeez’s action was deemed illegal as a majority of his deliveries exceeded the 15-degree flex limit.

Even though Hafeez was gutted by the news, the 37-year-old insisted that he will remedy his action and get it re-tested to ensure he can continue to have an impact with both the bat and ball.

While Hafeez is not permitted to bowl in international matches, he will be allowed to bowl in domestic matches if the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) let him.
