Mohammad Hafeez has been suspended from bowling in ECB competitions following a Bowling Review Group (BRG) appeal hearing at Lord’s.

The off-spinner’s suspension follows the process set out in the ECB’s Regulations for the Review of Bowlers Reported with a Suspected Illegal Bowling Action.

Hafeez’s bowling action was reported by umpires following the Vitality Blast match between Somerset and Middlesex at Taunton on 30th August 2019 and the player’s action then underwent independent assessment at Loughborough University.

That assessment, which was contested by Hafeez, found that the player’s elbow extension for his off-spin delivery exceeded 15 degrees as defined in the Illegal Bowling Regulations.

The player has been advised to correct his action. Once this has occurred the player may request a re-assessment of his action. Until he is able to pass an independent re-assessment of his action the player is not eligible to bowl in ECB competitions.
