Former Pakistan all-rounder Abdul Razzaq has admitted that Pakistan should be rejoicing now that Mohammad Hafeez’s bowling action has been cleared.
Hafeez’s action was deemed to be legal by the International Cricket Council (ICC) and he is now permitted to bowl in international matches.
With Hafeez’s action having been remodelled, Razzaq believes that the 37-year-old should regain his spot in the national team.
“Hafeez has always been an asset for Pakistan,” Razzaq told The Express Tribune. “He is a top all-rounder and helped the team in both the batting and bowling departments in the past. His return will surely help the team.
“He is playing well in domestic cricket and worked on his reported action to regain his all-rounder status. This hard work shows he is dedicated to serving the country.
“We are hopeful of seeing good performance from him in the future and use his skills for the team. He has to work harder to make his place permanent in the team, especially with so many young players emerging from domestic cricket.”
