PCB to request ICC on behalf of Mohammad Hasnain

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is to request the International Cricket Council (ICC) to reassess Mohammad Hasnain’s bowling action after it has been modified. The pacer’s bowling action was deemed illegal by Cricket Australia (CA) during the Big Bash League (2021-22) three months back.

Why was Mohammad Hasnain banned from international cricket?

The board made sure to rectify Hasnain’s style of appointing a bowling consultant for him. He underwent a Test for his bowling action reported by umpires at ICC-accredited biomechanics laboratory in Lahore following the umpires in the BBL 11 detected his action as ‘illegal’.

The youngster was supposed to undergo a Test in Australia on the 19th of February, but since there is an ICC-accredited centre in Lahore, the player was sent back to Pakistan for testing. The results of the testing showed illegal bowling action. As a consequence, the 22-year old was been suspended from bowling in domestic and international cricket until he corrects his bowling style.

Hasnain, following the ban, could not participate in the Pakistan Super League (PSL 2022) for the Quetta Gladiators and was left out of the historic Australia tour of Pakistan as well.

It must be noted Umar Rasheed of the National High-Performance Center (NHPC) has given green signals to the lad, who cleared the possession bowling with his elbow below the range of 15 Degrees. Since Hasnain’s bowling action has been modified, the PCB has decided to request ICC to reassess it.
