    Mohammad Hafeez's bowling action found to be illegal [Update Post #117]

    The International Cricket Council today announced that an independent assessment has found the bowling action of Pakistan’s Mohammad Hafeez to be illegal and, as such, the off-spinner has been suspended from bowling in international cricket with immediate effect.

    The assessment revealed that the majority of his deliveries exceeded the 15 degrees level of tolerance permitted under the regulations.

    In accordance with Article 11.1 of the ICC Illegal Bowling Regulations, Hafeez’s international suspension will also be recognised and enforced by all National Cricket Federations for domestic cricket events played in their own jurisdiction. However, pursuant to Article 11.5 of the Regulations and with the consent of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Hafeez may be able to bowl in domestic cricket events played under the auspices of the PCB.

    Hafeez was reported during the third One-Day International against Sri Lanka, which was played on 18 October in Abu Dhabi and had undergone an independent assessment of his bowling action on 1 November at Loughborough University.

    Hafeez can apply for a re-assessment after modifying his bowling action in accordance with clause 4.5 of theRegulations.

    Hopefully he gets dropped now. Useless as just a batsman. Hopefully haris sohail replaces him.

    No ban mentioned. All it says is he can apply for re-assessment.

    And he can bowl in domestic cricket; PSL etc. I assume.

    What a joke.

    I assume this is the third time this guy has been caught .

    It should be end of him at intl level , it is actually shameful he keeps getting back after being banned , pcb needs to put its foot down , we have raza hasan is a proper Offspin bowler who has some ability with the bat as well .

    Harris sohail is also an option but a much better batsmen than hafeez and raza

    Sad loss for Pakistan cricket and may cost Hafeez his spot in the side.

    Time to say good bye to Mr. Hafeez. His bowling surely will be missed especially given his effectiveness against left handers. We seriously need a good off spinner to break into this team ASAP. For the time being I think Bilal Asif should be groomed for this role given that he can be used as a pinch hitter. Ideally we can play the following team.

    1. Fakhar Z.
    2. Imam / U Amin
    3. Babar A.
    4. Sarfraz
    5. S. Malik
    6. Harris S / U Amin ( Time to get his fitness levels sorted)
    7. Imad W / Faheem A / Bilal A. ( 2 out of 3)
    8. Imad W / Faheem A / Bilal A. ( 2 out of 3)
    9. Shadab K.
    10. M. Amir
    11. Hassan A.

    I think we are missing the finer points in this announcement.

    Hafeez can apply for a re-assessment at any time.

    He can conceivably go and take a re-test next month, bowl with a legal action and be cleared before the NZ tour.

    These rules are ridiculous, a repeat offender like him should get a lengthy ban.

    No way he should be allowed to bowl in PSL either, that is like rigging it for Zalmi

    Why doesn't he wear something in his bowling arm which can prevent the bend to beyond 15 degrees, i believe that is one guaranteed way that will stop these guys exceeding 15 degrees.

    Good riddance. He was always hiding in the team as an all rounder. Now Pakistan can at least play someone who can bat and not act like a batsman.

    It was always on the card. Hafeez plays as a specialist batsman first and then as a bowler. And as a batsman you know how much reliable he is. These days he can't even bash his favorite punching bags. Really good time to call his day. Pakistan already has lots of bits and pieces cricketers in the squad. One less would be good.

    Lol at people saying good riddance. His place in the ODI XI is fixed (he was undroppable when he was averaging in the 20s, and is certainly more so now that he averages in 40s with the bat). His bowling being banned only spells disaster for the overall combination. He WILL NEVER be dropped (unless his batting is banned as well).

    More bad news for us. Knowing PCB he will now play as specialist batsman and it will force us to field 5 bowlers in a match+ a wicket keeper and only 5 batsmen which include useless Hafeez.

    I'd give him the next series as a batsman and if he fails there, then drop him. Wouldn't have been the worst idea for him to retire after the Champions Trophy Final considering he played an amazing innings there.

    Hafeez has served us well especially a few years ago where he was a pretty good opener and a very good LO bowler. He should go now, however. Haris Sohail offers the same utility and has a much higher ceiling as a pure batsman. We also have Malik, who's basically a clone of Hafeez.

    This is welcome news. I haven’t really followed Pakistan cricket after the champions trophy, but from what I recall Hafeez played a lot more aggressively in that tournament. If he can do that (despite his much deserved minnow basher reputation) I don’t mind him playing as a finisher. The tour to NZ will finish his career or prolong it

    there is nothing to suggest his ego will allow him to drop down to number 6.

    This is a guy who promoted himself to number 3 the next game after Babar had his trio of consecuvtive tons.

    Hafeez can still target the pinch hitting or slogging death overs role of imads. If he is clever enough, to keep his spot in the team till the CWC’19. Neither his slow batting nor his illegal bowling can continue to keep him in the team. Hafeez is a smart operator

    It is well known that this guy knows the limit of chucking and not. So he uses it wisely. Partly the blame will fall as it was hafeez only and then the team + hafeez is trying to use his chucking ability purposely. Yes PCB should take a stern action and stop him from bowling anymore if they want to.

    Bad news for Amin, Haris and Saad - now Ul Haq has one less slot for specialist batsman (and he is a Chachu as well). ICC actually has made it easy for PAK - MoHa can make it as bowler again by the NZ tour and this game can go on till 2023 WC. I write it again - this guy isn't Ajmal or Murali; he chucks deliberately and very much thick skinned about that; he'll pass the re-test with round arm action and start selectively chucking when required.

    I don't want to tag anyone here, but few posters should look at their face in mirror - who thought it was quite OK from MoHa, Sarfraz & Arthur to do what they did against SRL. I have written through out that 8-0 period - PAK would have won 8-0 without this cheating, but Captain couldn't raise upon his moral obligation to national pride and few posters as well - am sure they are still proud for that 8-0.

    Obviously, there are reasons that Adidas or Nike doesn't come close to PAK cricket and that's not for market size, purchasing power, Islamophobia ......

    Because he knows what he's doing.

    Hafeez isn't chucking by accident.

    Well if he's going to play as a specialist batsmen and be doesn't perform he will be dropped.

    If he's been found guilty he should be punished for longer than a year as he has already been caught once.

    Hafeez can apply for a re-assessment at any time.

    He can conceivably go and take a re-test next month, bowl with a legal action and be cleared before the NZ tour.

    These rules are ridiculous, a repeat offender like him should get a lengthy ban.
    Although this is 3rd time he got caught, this is considered first offence as the previous cycle has been completed. The purpose of this ban is to make him bowl with the proper action, not to kick him out cricket. There is a difference between someone like Hafeez who chucks in some deliveries to confuse the Batsman. And bowler like Saeed Ajmal whose entire bowling is based on an exaggerated elbow bend. If not for the new rules of examination and scrutiny Hafeez would never have gotten caught. As he never bowls the 'Doosra'

    Have you ever even played hard ball cricket? If a bowler is thinking about his elbow WHILE he is in his action then he isn't really bowling. Keep in mind bowling actions are developed after hours upon hours of training so that the bowler can repeat it without having to think about it and just focus on what to bowl and where to bowl it.

    Maybe for PP experts it would be easy to switch action every ball and as per their choosing but most mortals are unable to do so. Then again PP experts have speed guns in their eyes and super slo mo vision as well as instant replay feature, so anything is possible.

    played under 16 for my state. Easiest thing in the world to deliberately chuck. You don't need to change your action just bend your arm, give a jerk and straighten it in the same action and follow through. You will get more spin, bounce and pace and batsman will have a more difficult time picking the trajectory

    Accuracy as well - I have seen offie darters in club cricket hitting coins on good spot 2-3 times during nets, at will with a jerk from elbow. What MoHa does is 100% deliberate and his Coach, Captain is part of it. It's stupid to think that one day he bowls with round arm and lollipops and another day somehow his elbow starts to work like a spring without his control, but he starts to drop on perfect spot thereafter.

    I dont get this hatred for hatred for Hafeez, he averages 40 with Bat in UAE, and that is a good average keeping in mind Mr Shan Masood keeps his spot for averaging 25 at the strike rate of 40. He bowls well and his bowling was one of the reasons that we were able to choke SA in the middle overs. The pressure of which got to AB and he played a loose shot in a bid to accelerate. But you cant take these people seriously when they rate Inzi as much greater batsmen as Tendulkar

    He can. Once in a while a person can transgress limits, but that does not mean he cannot bowl legitimately with a remodelled action.

    Narine has been equally effective with his remodelled action.

    Shame ICC if you think they are clearing him despite chucking

    Not once, Hafeez has been caught red handed thrice.So he can't bowl normal delivery.In this last instance all his deliveries were found to be over 15 degree.He is the luckiest chucker in the world to get permission to bowl in so many matches.
    Narine don't play international matches now a days.i have serious doubt over his bowling action though remodeled

    Easy to say that it was once in a blue moon but if anyone plays like that in a championship final then he deserves the praise. Quality innings.

    And here we go again....

    LAHORE: The bowling action test of Pakistani all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez will be held later this month.

    Pakistan Cricket Board sources said that the bowling action test is expected on 17th April. The official date will be announced within two days.

    Mohammad Hafeez is optimistic that he will pass the test.

    The spinner was banned from bowling after he failed to clear the test.

    How many times can this guy get banned. He just straightens his action, passes the test and the gets banned again a couple of months later.

    There’s got to be a limit in the amount of times you can fail the test.

    He has support from Arthur as well. Arthur being an Englishman loves finger darters, who can bat a bit, so that he can put them at 7 for the “spin option” on 4th innngs.

    Otherwise, despite knowing what this guy is doin and what he is capable of, there is no point repeating every time that a bowling (read darting) MoHa is an asset for PAK team. I understand being politically correct from Arthur’s part, but I would have totally ignored, rather being politically correct, unless I had a soft corner.

    MoHa has no place in PAK team considering next 2 ICC events are in UK & AUS. Better he should focus on improving bowling with a legal action and PCB will take him to next CT & WC in India.

    InshaAllah he fails, there were actually posters who were supporting this guy as a crucial member for 2019 WC; forget the fact that he is bang average, they didn't care about his bowling action and how it could derail team plans. Imagine this clown clears the test and is selected for the 2019 WC, then moments before the event he is reported for chucking ! I find it shocking that there are people who were willing to overlook this, it is better to invest in the future now they don't need to be the finished article either, because players need to be developed. Am trying my best not to miss Jumma henceforth, oh lord please make Hafeez fail the test on the 17th and please keep him away from Pakistan cricket for good, he has disgraced his country time and time again and he will never be forgiven.


    Ah, so this is what it feels like
