Mohammad Hafeez has been cleared by ICC to bowl in International cricket.

Mohammad Hafeez, Pakistan all-rounder, can resume bowling in international cricket after his action was found legal.

The off-spinner was suspended from bowling in international cricket after his action was reported illegal during the Galle Test against Sri Lanka in July 2015 and later he was barred from bowling for around 12 months. This was also the second instance in 24 months when the 36-year-old was suspected of bowling with an illegal action. When Pakistan toured England earlier this year, Hafeez was about to give his re-test but a knee injury delayed the process.

Hafeez, who played as a batsman in the squad after he was suspended, underwent a reassessment of his bowling action at the National Cricket Centre in Brisbane on November 17. The test diagnosed that the amount of elbow extension for all his off-spin deliveries was within the 15-degree level of tolerance permitted under the ICC regulations.
