The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) hopes that pacer Mohammad Hasnain’s bowling action will be cleared as the biomechanics Test reports regarding his remodelled bowling action have been forwarded to Cricket Australia (CA). The results of the reports are expected next week and the PCB is optimistic to see Hasnain back in action after getting the green signal.
It must be noted the youngster was suspended from bowling in international cricket after his bowling style was found illegal during the recently concluded edition of the Big Bash League (BBL). According to ICC rules, if a bowler’s elbow extends 15 degrees, the action is considered illegal.
Notably, the umpires reported the bowler’s actions which were later assessed in Lahore. He was to be tested in Australia but since there was a laboratory in the homeland, he flew back to Pakistan leaving the BBL midway.
After his bowling action was found illegal, it was announced that the youngster will not participate in the Pakistan Super League (PSL 2022) for the Quetta Gladiators. The PCB also hired a specialist to rectify Mohammad Hasnain’s bowling action.
It is pertinent to mention here that Sydney Sixers’ skipper accused Hasnain of ‘chucking’ telling him ‘nice throw mate’ at one stage. Moises Henriques told the media “I could definitely argue that what he was doing was not in the spirit of the game”. However, the bowler was suspended on January 2nd in the team’s game against Adelaide Strikers. Hasnain was representing Sydney Thunder in the recent version of the BBL and shone to inspire the masses.
