Lahore [Pakistan], June 9 (ANI): Pakistan Cricket Board on Wednesday announced that fast bowler Mohammad Hasnain’s bowling action has been found to be legal after the amount of elbow extension in the reassessment was within the 15-degree level of tolerance permitted under the ICC Illegal Bowling Regulations.
Hasnains bowling action was reported in February when he was playing in the Big Bash League in Australia, and thereafter, he failed a bowling action review test conducted under ICC supervision.
The PCB also carried out its own test after getting a formal and detailed report from Cricket Australia on Hasnains assessment test, which stated his elbow extension for his good length delivery, full-length delivery, slow bouncer and bouncer exceeded the 15-degree limits.
“Mohammad Hasnain is an asset for Pakistan and one of the very few bowlers to consistently click 145kmp. As such, and keeping his future and Pakistan’s interest at the forefront, the PCB, on the recommendation of the HBL PSL 2022 Technical Committee, has decided he will not be allowed to continue to participate in the HBL Pakistan Super League,” PCB in a statement had said.
“Instead, he will use this time to work with the PCB-appointed bowling consultant to modify his bowling action so that he can apply for a reassessment and become eligible to return to international cricket as quickly as practically possible,” PCB added. (ANI)
