In accordance with Article 11.1 of the ICC Illegal Bowling Regulations, Hafeez's global suspension will also be recognised and enforced by all National Cricket Federations for domestic cricket events played in their own jurisdiction.

The 37-year-old was reported for a suspected illegal bowling action last month at the conclusion of the third One-Day International against Sri Lanka in Abu Dhabi.

In accordance with Article 11.1 of the ICC Illegal bowling regulations, the Pakistan pacer's global suspension will be recognised and enforced by all National Cricket Federations.

It is the third time Hafeez has fallen foul of the rules - the previous two coming in 2014 and 2015 - and Pakistan legend Akram says it is time to focus on one discipline. He underwent assessment at England's Loughborough University on Nov.1.

Hafeez can still apply for another assessment after remodeling his bowling action. "Work harder on his batting", said the former fast bowler. He was reported in November 2014 for the first time. Just 2 months after that he was once again reported for illegal action during a Test against Sri Lanka at Galle.

Tests confirmed again that his action was illegal, and because his action had been found illegal twice within a period of 24 months, he was automatically suspended from bowling for 12 months.

One thing in Pakistan's and Hafeez's favour is a relatively light global schedule. In the interim will be the PSL where, according to ICC regulations, he can bowl should the PCB choose to allow it.
