Oval Invincibles sign Hasnain for The Hundred after his bowling action was considered legal

One of the franchises of The Hundred, Oval Invincibles has signed a deal with Mohammad Hasnain as soon as the bowler’s bowling action has been considered legal officially.

Hasnain, the young Pakistani pacer was suspended from bowling in all forms of cricket after his style was found illegal during the recent Big Bash League (BBL) in Australia. Notably, he was signed by Sydney Thunders for the 2022 edition.

It is pertinent to mention here, as per ICC rules and regulations, that a bowler’s bowling action is considered illegal if his elbow extends 15 degrees while bowling. One of the umpires in Hasnain’s team match against Adelaide Strikers took notice of his bowling action and immediately reported to the concerned depart.

After the incident, Hasnain was set to undergo testing in Australia, however, he was sent back home since there is an ICC accredited laboratory in Lahore. He underwent testing for remodelling of his action. As the reports arrive last week, the PCB sent it CA for further examination, which have been given a green signal, setting the bowler ready to bowl again.

Oval Invincibles, inspired by youngster’s bowling in league cricket could wait no more and signed Hasnain as soon as the results of the reports arrived. The bowler too is joyed over getting an instant opportunity after dealing with a big blow.

“I’m overjoyed. The Hundred looked like great fun last year and I can’t wait to get involved. The opportunity to play alongside stars like Sunil Narine, Jason Roy and the Curran brothers is hugely exciting,”
