The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Friday said that pacer Mohammad Hasnain has been suspended from bowling and withdrawn from the Pakistan Super League (PSL) due to illegal bowling technique.
Hasnain was first reported on during the BBL league (Big Bash League) who was laying for the Sydney Thunders but unfortunately was ruled out for the Pakistan’s home series against Australia based on the above mentioned bowling technique. In the Big Bash League held last month, the 21-year-old was seen hurling thunder and lightning at the opponents who grabbed three wickets. Bowler Mohammad Hasnain was reported for a suspected illegal bowling action played against the Adelaide Strikers. Hasnain is not the first Thunder player to be subjected to a test of his action, something similar happened to Chris Green a few years ago and he was banned from the tournament for 90 days.
Thereafter, the bowler underwent a test at Cricket Australia’s ICC-approved facility, which is in Brisbane. The trial is a mandatory 14-day approach and has to be taken to proceed. The test which was taken again was at the ICC-accredited Biomechanics Laboratory in Lahore.
Hasnain is playing in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) for Quetta Gladiators in the ongoing edition of the tournament, and the pacer took three wickets. According to the International Cricket Council regulation on illegitimate bowling actions, the cricket board of the respective country can permit a bowler to carry in their domestic tournaments. However, the PCB said in a statement that Hasnain would not be allowed to participate in the rest of the PSL, and the cricket board appoints a bowling consultant who will work with the fast bowler to improve his bowling action.
The PCB has described the player as an asset to the team and one of the few bowlers in cricket who can bowl at a speed of 145kmHr. The PCB said that keeping in mind the future of the cricketers and the interests of Pakistan, the PCB will not allow the cricketer to play in the HBL Pakistan Super League on the recommendations of the HBL PSL 2022 Technical Committee.
Instead, he can make a proper use of the spare time to correct himself by the appointed bowling expert to improve in his bowling action and reapply for evaluation and be eligible to return to international cricket as soon as possible.
