Since the International Cricket Council (ICC) suspended Mohammad Hasnain from cricket in February, he has reportedly worked to improve his bowling action. In January, the umpires in the BBL reported the fast bowler. The curve of his arm surpassed the 15-degree restriction stipulated by ICC, which was validated by testing.
A bowling movement is considered foul when the bowler’s elbow extension exceeds 15 degrees, according to ICC rules. Hasnain’s full-length delivery, good-length delivery, bouncer, and slow bouncer extensions all exceeded the limit, and he was sanctioned as a result.
Hasnain’s bowling motion has been corrected, according to Cricket Pakistan, and the operation was overseen by Umar Rasheed at the National High-Performance Center (NHPC). Hasnain’s elbow was tested at a nearby laboratory, and the results indicated that it was within the permitted limits of 15 degrees.
PCB to request ICC for player review
Once satisfied, the PCB will contact the International Cricket Council (ICC) to request a review so that the player can return to action as soon as possible. For further satisfaction, the ICC will send him to a reputable laboratory to have his test findings validated and certified. Once the player receives approval from the regulatory authority, he will be permitted to resume his game.
Since his suspension, he has been training with a bowling coach hired by the PCB to improve his bowling motions. Hasnain made his international debut against Australia in Sharjah in March 2019. He became the youngest player in history to score an international hat-trick in the T20 format during a match against Sri Lanka.
Hasnain will be free to join the Pakistan squad for their forthcoming home series against the West Indies once the ICC has given him approval. Pakistan recently announced their schedule for their upcoming season, and the team will host England and New Zealand alongside the West Indies, as well as travel to the Netherlands and Sri Lanka.
