Will Mohammad Hasnain be able to play in PSL despite bowling action report?
The 21-year-old had his bowling action tested at the International Cricket Council-accredited biomechanics laboratory in Lahore on Tuesday.
Pakistani pacer Mohammad Hasnain suffered a big blow as his bowling action was reported by the umpires at Big Bash League (BBL). The 21-year-old had his bowling action tested at the International Cricket Council-accredited biomechanics laboratory in Lahore on Tuesday.
He had an impressive debut BBL season as he took 7 wickets in five matches. In his last game against the Sydney Sixers, Moises Henriques accused him of chucking.
Mohammad Hasnain bowling action test was scheduled in Australia on January 19th. However, as he was set to fly back home following the completion of his BBL stint, the Pakistan Cricket Board and Cricket Australia decided to conduct the test in Lahore.
Will Hasnain play the PSL?
Hasnain’s bowling action report had made his participation in Pakistan Super League doubtful. Now, a PCB spokesperson has answered all the questions.
The PCB spokesperson confirmed that the result of his bowling action will not impact his participation in PSL. “First of all, it is yet to be determined if Hasnain’s action is illegal or not. God forbid, it turns out to be illegal, he would still be eligible to play in the PSL.”
Mohammad Hasnain’s Quetta Gladiators’ coach, Moin Khan, believes that there is nothing wrong with the fast bowler’s bowling action. “Nothing as such has come into the limelight before about Hasnain. But this time Big Bash has closely watched Hasnain and have felt that a tilt is appearing in Hasnain’s elbow. I don’t think that’s the case though,” former Pakistan captain Moin said during a TV programme.
