ISLAMABAD (AP) – Suspended Pakistan allrounder Mohammad Hafeez will undergo official testing of his offspin bowling in India next week.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) says the International Cricket Council (ICC) will retest Hafeez at Sri Ramachandra University in Chennai on April 9.

Hafeez was suspended from bowling after he was reported during a test against New Zealand in Abu Dhabi in November. The offspinner’s elbow exceeded beyond the allowed 15-degree limit during a test in London.

Hafeez was to undergo a retest during the Cricket World Cup, where he was picked as a batsman, but returned home before the tournament began in February due to a foot injury.

He has worked with experts at the National Cricket Academy in Lahore to bring his elbow extension within the permissible tolerance limits.
