Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Tuesday announced it has formed a four-member committee to provide all possible training and assistance to rectify his bowling action at par with the ICC standards.
“The PCB will like to state that a bowling action review committee has been setup with Ahsan Raza, Ali Zia, Saleem Jaffar, and Sajad Akhtar its members.”
Hafeez’s bowling action was declared illegal by the ICC on November 16 after the all-rounder went through an independent assessment at Loughborough University.
The assessment, according to an ICC release, revealed that a majority of Hafeez's deliveries exceeded the 15-degree level of tolerance permitted under the regulations.
The 37-year-old will work on his action at the National Cricket Academy in Lahore. He will undergo a test at the biomechanics lab – set up in the Lahore University of Management Sciences - every 10 days. The committee will analyze the reports of the tests and will further guide Hafeez before he proceeds with the official assessment.
