PCB will serve Pakistani cricketer Mohammad Hafeez a show-cause notice.

This will be issued for ‘ill-conceived’ remarks which had been passed on in an interview against the International Cricket Council (ICC).

Previously, Hafeez had been suspended from international cricket for the third time over suspicious bowling act but was deemed cleared to return to the game eventually.

However, while the cricketer was awaiting his status, his interview with BBC has now landed him in hot water. A PCB official has confirmed that the sportsman will be issued a notice.

“PCB is issuing show cause notice to Hafeez for his ill-conceived remarks against icc in an interview to BBC,” -PCB Official

During the interview, the 37-year old had said;

“There are so many things influencing [who gets called for suspect actions], it has a lot to do with the power of [some] boards and nobody wants to take them on,” -Hafeez told BBC Urdu

“Mostly there are soft corners and relations between people which no one wants to spoil. What I say is why not implement the rule and get every bowler in the world to go through [the testing process]. What’s the difficulty in that?”

“When match umpires called me [for a suspect bowling action], I went for my test only to find the flex was recorded up to 16, 17 and 18 degrees,” Hafeez said. “I was surprised: how can anyone with the naked eye see flex from 15 to 16, and at times they are not able to call those whose flex is 25 and even 30-plus.

“So I have my doubts about this [calling system]. This is suspicious, why are match referees or on-field umpires not able to see those flexing up to 35 but me with 16 degrees?” he questioned.

Hafeez was cleared after his bowling action was deemed legal by Loughborough University after re-assessment.
