Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Hasnain has successfully altered his bowling action, Pakistan Cricket Board confirmed on Tuesday.
He was suspended from bowling internationally after biomechanics confirmed that his action was illegal, the country’s cricket commission said in February.
The test was carried out last week at the bio-mechanical laboratory of LUMS University.
The board said that it had not received the result of the second test, which was done in the same laboratory. “The LUMS tests also showed that his arm’s elbow was within the legal limits of 15 degrees. Once fully satisfied, the PCB will now officially request a review from ICC,” It added.
National High-Performance Center (NHPC) coach Umar Rasheed was instrumental in the correction of Hasnain’s bowling action.
Earlier, Hasnain was flagged for a suspicious action when passing with the Sydney Thunder to Australia’s Big Bash Twenty20 league last season.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) claimed Cricket Australia (CA) had checked the report.
According to the rules of the International Cricket Council, an illegal bowling action is when the elbow extension of the bowlers exceeds 15 degrees.
Sydney Sixers skip Moises Henriques accused Hasnain of “chucking” during a Big Bash match, telling him “nice throw, mate ” at some point.
The umpires reported on its action, which was later evaluated in Lahore.
Hasnain is an emerging fast bowler who has so far played 18 T20 internationals and eight ODIs for Pakistan.
