Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez has been released from Test squad facing New Zealand so that he can undergo independent testing on his suspect bowling action on November 24th at Loughborough University in England. 

An ICC accredited team of biomechanics experts at one of the authorized laboratories in Loughborough will test Hafeez’s action. 

During an interview, Pakistan team’s chief selector Moin Khan said: 

All-rounder Mohammad Hafeez is returning back home tonight from where he shall proceed to Loughborough University, the latest of ICC accredited facilities for testing on bowlers with suspect actions, on November 23 for his appointment for tests on November 24.

“After tests at Loughborough, Hafeez shall fly back directly to Dubai from Birmingham on Nov 25. If physically fit, he shall be in contention to regain his spot for the third Test against New Zealand at Sharjah.

Hafeez is the second Pakistan bowler to be reported for suspect bowling action after Saeed Ajmal, who is currently suspended from playing cricket as he exceeded the 15-degree limit.
