Media reports suggest that Hasnain’s arm extension was recorded to be between 17 and 24 degrees for different deliveries. While explaining the development a statement issued by the PCB read, “The PCB today received a formal and detailed report from Cricket Australia on Hasnain’s assessment test, which stated his elbow extension for his good length delivery, full length delivery, slow bouncer and bouncer exceeded the 15-degree limits. The PCB has discussed the report with its own bowling experts and is confident that the problem can be resolved. The PCB will now appoint a bowling consultant who will work with him so that he can rectify his bowling action and be ready for a reassessment.
