The board, on the other hand, felt certain that his actions could be rectified.

“After discussing the report with its own bowling experts, the PCB is sure that the issue can be remedied.” The PCB will now employ a bowling consultant to work with Mohammad Hasnain to improve his bowling action and prepare for a review.”

The fast bowler has also been suspended from bowling in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 7, which is currently underway.
