Oct 07, 2015
bilal-asif-0510 LAHORE: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has summoned the national cricket team off-spinner, Bilal Asif, for accuracy of his suspect bowling action. According to PCB's spokesperson, Pakistan's emerging player will work on his suspect bowling action under the supervision of coaches at National Cricket Academy (NCA). The coaches will give special attention on 'Doosra' and 'Carrom' ball of the off-spinner. The board will contact the ICC within a few days for the action test of Asif, reports said. 30-year-old Asif was reported for suspect bowling action during 3rd ODI against Zimbabwe in which he took career best five wickets at Harare Sports Club. His bowling action will now be scrutinized further under the ICC process relating to suspect illegal bowling actions. Asif 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. – Samaa/APP
