LAHORE – Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez has been reported for suspect bowling action during the third ODI, which Pakistan won by seven wickets on Wednesday.

Hafeez  is currently a part of Pakistan’s ODI squad which is leading the five-match series 3-0 against Sri Lanka in UAE.

“The match officials’ report, which was handed over to the Pakistan team management, cited concerns about the legality of the 37-year-old’s bowling action,” read an ICC press release.

The press release further said: “Hafeez’s bowling action will now be scrutinised further under the ICC Illegal Bowling Regulations. He is required to undergo testing within 14 days, and, during this period, Hafeez is permitted to continue bowling in international cricket until the results of the assessments are known.”
