Mohammad Hafeez allowed to resume bowling in international cricket
Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez has been allowed to resume bowling at the international level after the ICC gave a green signal to his bowling action. He underwent a reassessment session at the National Cricket Centre in Brisbane, and was found to have his elbow extension within the 15-degree limit. He was suspended from bowling in 2014, but was permitted to resume bowling early next year. In July 2015, he was suspended for a period of twelve months.
More injury woes for England
When Mohammed Shami sent shivers down the spine of the England lower order yesterday with a fiery spell, he dented more than just their ego. For, reports are now emerging that Chris Woakes has suffered a crack in his right thumb when batting in the second innings at Mohali.
Fans would recall that Shami struck Woakes on the helmet and then followed it up with another short one directed at the helmet. Woakes managed to glove the ball but couldn't keep it down and ended up lobbing it up to Parthiv Patel.
An X-ray has now reportedly revealed a "tiny crack".
England, two-down in the series, have already lost young opener Haseeb Hameed who is slated to fly back home for a surgery to treat his injured finger. On the back of that injury to Hameed, Woakes's bruised finger only dents England's preparation for the remainder of the series.
That said, the tourists are hopeful that the all-rounder would be able to recover in time for the fourth Test in Mumbai on December 8.
