Umpire Gerard Abood, reported Hasnain, in a match between Sydney Thunder and Adelaide Strikers at Sydney Showground Stadium on January 2, for which the Pakistan pacer has been suspended from bowling in the ongoing Pakistan Super League, the Big Bash League, and international cricket. Hasnain, who presently plays for the Quetta Gladiators in the Pakistan Super League, had his action examined by an ICC-approved facility in Lahore, with the results provided to Cricket Australia. CA’s independent expert reviewed and validated it.

“Hasnain was supposed to be tested at Cricket Australia’s ICC-approved facility in Brisbane within the mandated 14-day deadline and before leaving Australia, according to the Suspected Illegal Bowling Action Procedures. Following his and others’ early recall by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), it was decided that he would take his test at the PCB’s accredited facility in Lahore, with the findings sent to Cricket Australia for independent review and verification. Hasnain’s action was determined to be illegal by the PCB’s testing laboratory, and the report was examined and certified by CA’s independent expert,” stated by Cricket Australia on Friday according to Cricbuzz.

On the other side, the PCB indicated that they have discussed the report with their own bowling experts and are sure that the issue can be remedied. The PCB will assign a bowling expert to work with Hasnain to assist him improve his bowling action and prepare for re-evaluation.
