Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez has been cleared to resume bowling in international cricket after his action was found to be legal following remedial work and reassessment. Hafeez underwent a reassessment test of his bowling action in Brisbane on November 17 where it was revealed that the amount of elbow extension for all his off-spin deliveries was within the 15-degree level of tolerance permitted under the ICC regulations. The off-spinner was banned from bowling for 12 months in July 2015 after being reported during a test win over Sri Lanka In Galle the previous month. Mohammad Hafeez said that “it has been a tough last few months for him because of the ban and than some fitness issues. But now he is 100 per cent fit and confident of regaining his best form again. The national selectors ignored Hafeez for the home series against the West Indies in the UAE and than for the tour to New Zealand and Australia. Hafeez has 52 wickets in tests, 129 in odis, and 46 in t20s.
