Mohammad Hafeez ready to undergo bowling assessment test from ICC

Last week, the 36-year-old spinner had said that he was fully fit and was ready to undergo bowling assessment test. Hafeez, who appeared in 50 Tests, 177 ODIs and 77 T20s for Pakistan, has been facing problems with his bowling action since 2014. He was handed a ban by the ICC twice for an illegal bowling action , firstly in December 2014 which later got cleared in April 2015 and second in July last year for 12 months. Earlier, Pakistan s experienced all-rounder, Mohammad Hafeez has informed the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) that he is ready to undergo a bowling assessment test from the International Cricket Council (ICC).

I had delayed taking the ICC bowling assessment test because I was not 100 percent fit because of my knee problem. But now that I have made a complete recovery, I have told the PCB they can get a date from the ICC, Hafeez said on Monday in Karachi.
