Mohammed Hafeez likely to undergo bowling test in two weeks
The Pakistani all-rounder Mohammed Hafeez is likely to appear for the biomechanics test within a period of two weeks’ time to get his action cleared. Hafeez has already served his ban period of one year and now he can get his action tested.
Hafeez was banned from bowling last year as he was found violating the 15-degree elbow rule. He was banned after the test which was held in Chennai last year in the month of July. Now since his ban period is over, he can get his action tested again.
His ban period was over on 17 July 2016 which also turned out to be the last day of the first Test match at Lords. The Pakistani team badly missed a spinner on the last day as it was seen that the Pakistan team needed a spinner who could assist Yasir Shah. The presence of a spinner in the bowling line up could have resulted in the match ending atleast 15-20 overs earlier.
Hafeez is currently preparing for the test and is sweating it out hard to fix his action to get it cleared as he has an important role to play as a bowler. Hafeez can get you early wickets in ODI’s and T20’s which we have seen in past. He is a secret weapon for the captain which always produces favourable results. His ban for a period one year was a big loss for his team as he is a bowler who always produces results at the crucial time. Hafeez ban was a big loss for his team and now it is the best chance for Hafeez to make a comeback as a bowler.
“Hafeez isn’t expected to return during the Test series, but his return will lend balance to the team,
“Hafeez has a great economy rate and his record against left-handers is as good as any off spinners in the game. His return will help us in all three formats.”
“Hafeez’s problem stems from the pause just before he delivers the ball,”
“That pause forces him to generate more power using his elbow, which then bends while delivering the ball. All he needs to do is minimise the pause.” says national selector Tauseef Ahmed
“If he starts using his wrist a little more, he will easily regain his old touch with a modified action,” added Tauseef. “His elbow flex isn’t too high and I am confident that he won’t lose much of his old trickery with a new action,” Tauseef Ahmed said in his concluding comments.
