  • Hafeez suspended for illegal bowling action

Even though Hafeez was gutted by the news, the 37-year-old insisted that he will remedy his action and get it re-tested to ensure he can continue to have an impact with both the bat and ball.

Hafeez has now been suspended from bowling on three occasions. "I think Hafeez does not realise that he has been bowling a lot and when he bowls a lot he tends to get exhausted which is natural and that is when I think his elbow extension exceeds the 15 degrees extension allowed by the ICC", he added.

It was the third time that Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez had been reported for a suspect bowling action in his worldwide career. In April 2015, his bowling action was passed as legal by the governing body.

McGregor then followed Goddard across the cage before giving him a slight shove him in the back, just before officials intervened. The Bellator 187 event took place Friday evening in Dublin and is scheduled to air on tape delay in the USA on Spike TV.

Hafeez can still apply for another assessment after remodeling his bowling action. However, a few months later, his action was reported during the Galle Test versus Sri Lanka.

Hafeez had earlier undergone a biomechanics test in England for his suspected bowling action, where he was asked to bowl 24 deliveries in the test, which lasted for more than 90 minutes. In a different time, Hafeez's action was called in Australia as well - back in 2005 - while just before he was reported in November 2014, he was also reported in a Champions League T20 game in India. There is the possibility of a T20 series against West Indies in Pakistan in March, but otherwise they are not scheduled to play any worldwide cricket until the tour to England in May.
