“But owing to the time lost due to injury as well as his concentrating on batting practice, Hafeez has not been able to devote adequate time to the remedial work”, the statement added
Hafeez has recently resumed bowling the nets and, as per the PCB statement, he is confident that in the next few days he would be able to present himself for the test.
Meanwhile Pakistan team’s manager Intikhab Alam said as soon as Hafeez intimates his willingness to undergo the test, the PCB will seek an appointment for him from the Loughborough lab.
The ICC’s one year ban on Hafeez’s eligibility to undergo the bowling action test expired on July 17.
Hafeez was banned from bowling in international cricket for 12 months after his action was found to be illegal for a second time since November 2014.
