The bowler's majority of deliveries exceeded the 15 degrees level of tolerance which is permitted under the regulations. It is believed that less than half a dozen deliveries were within the 15-degree limit, but that margins he was over by were not as big as, for example, Saeed Ajmal's when he was suspended a few years ago. This is the third time that the offie has been barred from bowling in worldwide cricket.

Hafeez then took to Twitter to plead his innocence, and soon, Pakistan fans started questioning ICC's verdict.

It leaves Hafeez to ponder over the future of his bowling once again. The offspinner underwent reassessment of his bowling action at the National Cricket Centre in Brisbane, and was cleared in November 2016. There is a suggestion, however, that he will give himself as much time as he needs to resolve issues in his action before he applies for a re-assessment. "Work harder on his batting", said Akram.

Rand Paul tackled by neighbor over "trivial" dispute
The Republican "was blindsided and the victim of an assault" on Friday, a spokeswoman for him was quoted by U.S. media as saying. In the arrest warrant , Paul said he was mowing his lawn when "his neighbor came onto his property and tackled him from behind".


According to Pakistan newspaper the Dawn, Zaka said the Pakistan off-spinner should have either gone to South Africa or Australia for his bowling action test as countries like England and India have biased attitude against Pakistan players.

It is the third time Hafeez has fallen foul of the rules - the previous two coming in 2014 and 2015 - and Pakistan legend Akram says it is time to focus on one discipline. However, a few months later, his action was reported during the Galle Test versus Sri Lanka.

"I have made a decision to not go to Bangladesh to play for the Comilla Victorians and instead I will remain in Lahore and work on my bowling action before taking a biomechanics test again at a ICC accredited laboratory", Hafeez said.
