After Saeed Ajmal the ICC has also banned Pakistan’s ace and world’ number one all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez from bowling in the international cricket, due to the suspect bowling action. It seems as if the ICC scanners are only able to catch Pakistan bowlers, most often than not. Why were these bowlers not banned when they came on the scene fresh, why now? Banning Saeed Ajmal and Mohmmad Hafeez does seem to make sense because the World Cup is just around the corner and its seems that the ICC, which sounds more of a Indian Cricket Council, has decided to corner the Pakistani team. PCB, as always doesn’t know what to do in this situation. In this murky business of banning bowlers, I wonder who’s in the line next, Yasir Shah or Zulfiqar Babar or may be Mohammad Irfan, just because he is unusually tall, you never know what new excuse they will find to push our team up against the wall.
