Hafeez's bowling action deemed illegal

Hafeez's bowling action deemed illegal

Data on Hafeez's action was captured for four overs' worth of deliveries - the data that is recorded is only for those deliveries where testers are satisfied that the match action has been replicated in the lab.

This is not the first time the veteran Pakistani all-rounder has been banned from bowling in worldwide cricket.

It leaves Hafeez to ponder over the future of his bowling once again. There is a suggestion, however, that he will give himself as much time as he needs to resolve issues in his action before he applies for a re-assessment.

According to Pakistan newspaper the Dawn, Zaka said the Pakistan off-spinner should have either gone to South Africa or Australia for his bowling action test as countries like England and India have biased attitude against Pakistan players.

As for the design, the design features a bezel-less look, more ergonomic design, and the Alert Slider is still on the left edge. It features a 6-inch, reduced bezel AMOLED display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and an 80.5 percent screen to body ratio.

Hafeez was suspended after his action was cited in November 2014, but returned in April 2015. "Work harder on his batting", said the former fast bowler. Just 2 months after that he was once again reported for illegal action during a Test against Sri Lanka at Galle.

Zaka also hit out at the PCB for not taking care of players who are reported having an illegal bowling action despite the board setting up its own bio-mechanic lab at a private university in Lahore which still awaits ICC's accreditation.

He served a 12-month ban starting July, 2015 after his action was found to be illegal for the second time in a two-year period. "There is lot of cricket coming up with the national team next year", he added.
