Bilal Asif reported for suspected illegal bowling action


Karachi: Pakistan’s Bilal Asif has been reported with a suspected illegal bowling action during the third and final One-Day International against Zimbabwe, which Pakistan won by seven wickets in Harare on Monday to claim the series 2-1.

The match officials’ report, which was handed over to the Pakistan team management, cited concerns about the legality of the 30-year-old’s bowling action.

Bilal’s bowling action will now be scrutinised further under the ICC process relating to suspected illegal bowling actions reported in Tests, ODIs and T20Is.

He is required to undergo testing within 14 days, and, during this period, Bilal is permitted to continue bowling in international cricket until the results of the testing are known.
