PCB serves show-cause notice to Muhammad Hafeez

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Friday issued show-cause notice to all-tounder Muhammad Hafeez after he declared International Cricket Council’s (ICC) rules and regulations pertaining to bowling action.

The show-cause notice was sent to Muhammad Hafeez for violating code of conduct.

The PCB directed former cricket team captain to submit his reply within seven days over his controvercial statement.

Earlier, Pakistan cricket team’s all-rounder had criticized International Cricket Council (ICC) law regarding bowling action.

The player, known with the name of ‘Professor’ in national cricket team, had recently allowed bowling in international cricket after remodeling action. He was banned from bowling over his suspicious action which was reported in October last year against Sri Lanka.

Hafeez was also pointed out for his ‘doubtful bowling action’ in November 2014 and June 2015.

In an interview, Hafeez declared ICC’s laws unfair because their implications are different for the powerful and weak. He further stated that he is unable to understand that how is it possible to identify the difference of 1 degree in bowling actions through human eye.

Hafeez questioned about those international bowlers whose actions are clearly violating ICC rules and regulations but they have never faced any restrictions like him.

‘Professor’ had also demanded ICC to declare bio-mechanic test for all bowlers as a rule to end the discrimination.
