Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez has been cleared to bowl in ECB competitions after his bowling action passed an independent assessment at the ICC Accredited Testing Centre in Lahore.

The ECB has received the Independent Assessment Report from the re-test, which was conducted on behalf of the ECB, and which found that Hafeez’s action did not exceed the 15-degree elbow extension threshold.

Hafeez’s bowling action was initially reported by the umpires who stood in the Vitality Blast match between Somerset and Middlesex at Taunton on 30 August 2019.

He was then suspended from bowling after an independent assessment, conducted at Loughborough University, found that the player’s elbow extension exceeded 15 degrees as defined in the ECB’s Regulations for the Review of Bowlers Reported with Suspected Illegal Bowling Actions.

That assessment was upheld by a Bowling Review Group (BRG) appeal hearing at Lord’s in December.
