Hafeez to skip BPL to work on bowling action
Lahore: Pakistan all rounder Mohammad Hafeez, who was suspended for a suspect bowling action has decided to skip the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) to work on his bowling action.
Hafeez was suspended after his bowling action was found beyond the 15 degree limit on Thursday.
He was set to join BPL franchise Comila Victorians from November 18.
Hafeez said, “I have decided to not go to Bangladesh to play for the Comilla Victorians and instead I will remain in Lahore and work on my bowling action before taking a bio-mechanics test again at a ICC accredited laboratory.”
Hafeez’s bowling has played a crucial part in Pakistan’s prolific run in the limited overs formats in the past few months.
During the Champions Trophy ’17, Hafeez performed with the ball and the bat. He has since become an important middle order player in the team.
On the other hand, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will invite a bio-mechanics expert or Saqlain Mushtaq to Lahore to work with Hafeez.
Hafeez will be tested out at the bio-mechanics laboratory set up by the PCB at Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) campus in Lahore.
