After Adnan Rasool, yet another Pakistan bowler Mohammad Hafeez has been reported for suspect bowling action during the Champions League T20 being played in India.
The umpires took the decision to report Hafeez’ bowling action after careful observation during the T20 match between Lahore Lions vs Dolphins in Bangalore on Saturday night.
Along with Hafeez, Dolphins off-spinner Prenelan Subrayen was also reported for suspected bowling action.
According to the rules of the Champions League, the reported players are allowed a chance to request for an assessment from the BCCI’s suspect bowling action committee.
Even though these players have been reported, they are allowed to play for their teams without any assessment, but they will be put on alert in the ‘warning list’ as per its rules.
If the reported players are again found to be bowling in the same suspected way during the warning time, they will be suspended from bowling again in the tournament or in any other cricket matches organised by the BCCI – until their actions are cleared.
Just because players are reported for suspect actions in the CLT20 League, it will not make any difference for their participation in international cricket for their respective countries.
Last weak Lahore Lions’ off-spinner Adnan Rasool was also reported.
These reports were made by umpires Kumar Dharmasena, Vineet Kulkarni and Anil Chaudhary.
Both these players who are all-rounder, had opened the bowling and had their full quota of four overs.
While Mohammad Hafeez took two wickets for 18 runs, Subrayen conceded 39 runs without picking a wicket.
