ICC confirmed that Hafeez’s bowling action as illegal

The International Cricket Council has confirmed that an independent analysis test at Hafeez bowling action was found to be illegal and this off-spinner has been suspended from bowling in international cricket with immediate effect. The analysis has revealed that all his deliveries exceeded the 15 degrees level of tolerance permitted by ICC under the regulations. Hafeez was reported for his suspect bowling action after the first Test match against New Zealand in Abu Dhabi last month. He can apply for a re-assessment after he has modified his bowling action in accordance with clause 2.4 of the Regulations for the Review of Bowlers Reported with Suspected illegal Bowling Actions. The test was performed on 24 November by the ICC's accredited team of Human Movement Specialists using the National Cricket Performance Centre at Loughborough.
