Pakistan speedster Mohammad Hasnain’s bowling action has been declared illegitimate after the biochemical testing at an ICC accredited laboratory in Lahore. Hasnain’s action was reported by umpire Gerard Abood while playing for the Sydney Thunder in the Big Bash League on January 2. The testing has revealed that Hasnain breached the ICC’s 15-degree limit for elbow extension, rendering his action illegal. Moreover, the PCB in a statement said that Hasnain will not be allowed to participate any further in the PSL, and the cricket board will appoint a bowling consultant who will work with the pacer to rectify his bowling action.
