Pakistan pacer Mohammad Hasnain has been suspended from bowling after failing to clear his bowling action, which was reported by umpire Gerard Abood in a match between Sydney Thunder and Adelaide Strikers.

The Cricket Australia release, on Friday, further stated, “As per the Suspected Illegal Bowling Action Procedures, Hasnain was due to be tested at Cricket Australia’s ICC-approved facility in Brisbane within the mandated 14-day timeframe and before his departure from Australia. However, after he and others were recalled early by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), it was agreed he would conduct his test at the PCB’s approved facility in Lahore, with results provided to Cricket Australia for independent review and verification.”

“This process has been completed, with Hasnain’s action found to be illegal by the PCB’s testing laboratory and the report reviewed and verified by CA’s independent expert.”
