Tauseef Ahmed said there is something “not correct” with Pakistan spinner Sajid Khan’s non-bowling arm.
Sajid has played seven Tests for Pakistan and taken 22 wickets at an average of 37.81.
However, following a dismal series against Australia, where he took four wickets in three Tests at an average of 119.25, he was dropped for the two-Test series against Sri Lanka.
Away from the team now, Tauseef said the 29-year-old needs to fix the issues with bowling action.
“His non-bowling arm is not correct,” he was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.
Pakistan recently featured in a seven-match T20 series against England, which they lost 4-3.
Their next assignment will be a T20 tri-series against New Zealand and Bangladesh, which will be played in Christchurch from October 7 to 14.
Pakistan also announced their team for the 2022 T20 World Cup in Australia, which begins on October 16.
