Hafeez's action to be officially tested on July 6
LAHORE (Web Desk) - All rounder Mohammad Hafeez will undergo an official test on his bowling action on July 6 in Chennai.

The ICC had earlier set a deadline of July 4 for the reassessment of his action but the PCB had requested an extension on the grounds that Hafeez's Indian visa, needed to travel to the ICC-accredited testing centre in Chennai, was delayed. The allrounder was granted a visa on Wednesday afternoon.

Hafeez was reported on June 21 and according to ICC regulations he needed to appear for testing within 14 days.

He faces a one-year suspension from bowling if his elbow flex is found to be over the permissible 15-degree limit because it would be the second time his action was declared illegal in the last two years.

Hafeez will not participate in the third Test against Sri Lanka, which starts on Friday in Pallekele, but will remain with the team until July 6.

He was reported for a suspect action after the first Test in Galle. According to ICC regulations, he is allowed to bowl until the results of the tests are out and he bowled 14 overs in the second Test in Colombo, which Pakistan lost by seven wickets.

Hafeez had also been reported in November last year and then banned from bowling in December because his elbow extension was as high as 31 degrees. After a delay due to injury, Hafeez was cleared to bowl only this April following tests in Chennai.
