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 been suspended for his deliveries. He will still be allowed to play domestic matches if the Pakistan Cricket Board agrees, the ICC said, adding he can apply for a reassessment once he has corrected his action.
The spinner has taken 247 wickets in 326 global games for Pakistan. In April 2015, his bowling action was passed as legal by the governing body. Just 2 months after that he was once again reported for illegal action during a Test against Sri Lanka at Galle. As per ICC rues, if a bowler's action is found to be exceeding the 15-degree tolerance twice within a period of 24 months, he would be suspended for one year. There is the possibility of a T20 series against West Indies in Pakistan in March, but otherwise they are not scheduled to play any worldwide cricket until the tour to England in May.
