Hafeez's bowling action has been detected as illegal by the ICC rule for the third time in his career.

The off-spinner, 37, was cited by umpires in Pakistan's seven-wicket win over Sri Lanka in a one-day global on 18th October.

Following a test at Loughborough University, Hafeez's action was deemed illegal as a majority of his deliveries exceeded the 15-degree flex limit. This is the third suspension from bowling in worldwide cricket for Hafeez.

Pakistan's Mohammad Hafeez has been suspended from bowling in worldwide cricket for the third time in three years after the ICC found his bowling action to be illegal.
