LAHORE: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has asked the International Cricket Council (ICC) to set a date for a formal biomechanics test of all rounder Muhammad Hafeez in Brisbane as the bowler is fully prepared to appear for it to get himself cleared.
PCB request to issue date before upcoming Cicket World Cup 2015.
Pakistan are due to take on arch-rivals India in their opening match and the Men in Green have never beaten their Blue opponents in World Cup history.
Hafeez was an integral part of Pakistan as an all-rounder and the selectors and PCB’s illegal action committee members are confident that he will roll over his arm in World Cup.
The PCB has already announced a 15-member squad for the World Cup, which misses effective off-spinners like Ajmal and Mohammad Hafeez, whose action was also declared illegal by the ICC and who will play as a batsman only.
Pakistan’s bowling line consists of Shahid Afridi, Yasir Shah, M. Irfan, Ehsan Adil, Junaid Khan, Sohail Khan and Wahab Riaz. The sources said head coach Waqar Younis had great faith in the abilities of Wahab, so he supported his selection.
