    Hafeez reported to the ICC for chucking

    Pakistan's Mohammad Hafeez has been reported for a suspected illegal bowling action following the VB Series match with West Indies at Brisbane on Wednesday.

    The ICC announced that the offspinner Hafeez, 24, had been reported directly after the match by on-field umpires Rudi Koertzen and Peter Parker, the third umpire, Simon Taufel, and the match referee, Chris Broad.

    Under the ICC's bowling review regulations, an expert biomechanist will now be appointed to work with Hafeez to rectify any flaws during the delivery action before a report is sent to the ICC, with details of any required remedial action.

    The way that international cricket deals with illegal actions is currently under review following recommendations put forward by a panel of former international cricketers: Aravinda de Silva, Angus Fraser, Michael Holding, Tony Lewis, Tim May and David Richardson. The ICC chief executives' committee will meet next month to discuss these

    Thread title edited due to "Mohammad Hafeez has been reported for a suspected illegal bowling action".
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Yes it was a very annoying title and good thinking to edit it.

    It happens to the best of us.

    On topic though... I suppose this means that Yasir Hameed will play the next game then, as they seemed to be playing Hafeez because they were unwilling to bowl Shoaib Malik. Now both are in the same boat.

    Alternatively, they could bring Younis Khan in and pray over his legbreaks.

    The same leggies that flat-track bully Craig McMillan dispatched around Hamilton's WestpacTrust Park for a world record in one over a few years ago?

    Hence the intense prayer.

    Word is that experience drove him insane. Hence he was ready to become a wicketkeeper.

    You have to wonder if the Pakistan coaching infestructure actually watches its young cricketers play. How 2 players can make it to the international side then get pulled up is astonishing.
    Either they are ok in domestic cricket and just suddenly change their action when the pressures on in international games, or coaches just arent good enough to spot the problems, or spot them but dont do anything about it.

    Not looking good for Pakistan's bowling stocks:

    Pakistan's highest ranking cricket official conceded his country's bowling ranks were riddled with suspect actions after off spinner Mohammad Hafeez yesterday became the fourth high-profile player reported for chucking in recent years.

    I saw a little clip of him on Fox Sports News this morning and there was definitely a little elbow flick in his delivery; obviously I can't say how many degrees it is, but if the people who were saying that even 15 degrees is barely visible in real-time then Hafeez might be in a spot of bother.

    Salman Butt looks like he might be in for some bowling!

    Although his action didnt really look 100% either!
