Mohammad Hasnain Reported For Suspect Illegal Bowling Action And Is Set To Undergo A Test On His Bowling Action
Pakistan pacer Mohammad Hasnain has been reported for a suspect illegal bowling action in the ongoing Big Bash League. His action was reported by the umpires in the game between Sydney Thunder and Adelaide Strikers on January 2. In a statement, Cricket Australia confirmed it was during that first appearance that he was reported by the umpires.
Mohammad Hasnain played another four matches in the competition. In his last game against Sydney Sixers, Moises Henriques was heard on the stump mic saying “nice throw mate” to Mohammad Hasnain, after he bowled him a bouncer. He didn’t pick up a wicket in that game though he was economical (4-0-22-0), as the Sydney Sixers won the match by 60 runs.
Mohammad Hasnain, who once bowled a 155kph delivery in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL), has played 8 ODIs and 18 T20 Internationals after making his Pakistan debut in 2019. He has picked 12 ODI and 17 T20I scalps.
