CRICKET: Pakistan spinner Mohammad Hafeez to face bowling tests

Published:Wednesday | November 19, 2014 | 11:31 PM

Pakistan off-spinner Mohammad Hafeez will fly to England next week for tests after he was reported for a suspect bowling action.



Hafeez was reported during the first Test match against New Zealand in Abu Dhabi last week - which Pakistan won by 248 runs.



Under International Cricket Council regulations, a bowler must be tested within 21 days of being reported.



Hafeez, who has played 39 Tests and 149 one-day-internationals, was dropped from the current second Test with New Zealand because of a hamstring injury he sustained after his action was reported.



Pakistan team manager Moin Khan says if declared fit, Hafeez will return to the squad for the remainder of the Test and One-Day International series in the United Arab Emirates.



Fellow Pakistan spinner Saeed Ajmal was suspended after he failed a biomechanic test in Brisbane in September.
