One of the officials said that Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is still waiting for a visa to be provided to all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez by the Indian High Commission in Abu Dhabi so that he can travel to Chennai for his bowling tests.

A senior official of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said that the Pakistan Board has arranged to send Hafeez for his bowling test to the International Cricket Council certified bowling center in Chennai.

The official stated that they would like him to fly there as soon as possible but they are still waiting for the visa to be provided. Generally, it takes sometime for visas to be provided from the IHC in Abu Dhabi.

Mohammad Hafeez is presently playing in the One Day International series against New Zealand in the United Arab Emirates but his part is cramped to batting as the International Cricket Council (ICC) has banned him from bowling in international cricket after he failed an International Cricket Council (ICC) bowling test last month.

The official also stated that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) was eager to get a clear scenario on whether Saeed Ajmal and Hafeez would be available for the World Cup by the end of this month.

The official said that Saeed Ajmal is doing practicing and bowling daily at the National Cricket Academy and he will most likely play in the final two One Day games against Kenya.

He added that after he plays in these matches, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will decide when he should travel to Chennai for his official International Cricket Council (ICC) bowling test so that they know whether his action is legal to bowl again in international cricket.

The official said that the selectors have enlisted the names of Hafeez and Saeed in the World Cup 30 probables’ list but the national selectors also wanted to know their status as bowlers by the end of this month.
