PCB hopes Mohammad Hasnain's bowling action will be cleared

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has forwarded biomechanics test reports of Mohammad Hasnain's bowling action hoping that his style will be cleared to be able to bowl again. Notably, the young pacer was suspended after his bowling action was found illegal during the recent edition of the Big Bash League (BBL) in Australia.

On January 2, representing Sydney Thunder versus Adelaide Strikers, the umpires found the flaw in his bowling style. As per the rules of the International Cricket Council (ICC), a bowler's style is considered illegal if his elbow extension exceeds 15 degrees.

Hasnain's action was to be tested in Australia but since there is a biomechanics lab in Lahore, he was sent back to Pakistan. The PCB also announced hiring a specialist to remodel and rectify his bowling. 

According to reports, the results of the test reports are to arrive next week and the PCB hopes Hasnain is set to bowl again. It must be noted that following this development, he was unable to participate in the Pakistan Super League (PSL 2022) for the Quetta Gladiators.
