Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Hasnain, who came in as a replacement for English quick Saqib Mahmood, and took 4 for 22 in Thunder's 53-run win over Brisbane Heat, is reportedly set to undergo a test on his action on Tuesday after it was reported by umpires in the Big Bash League. Hasnain will undergo the test at the ICC-accredited biomechanics laboratory in Lahore.

The right-arm pacer played five games for Sydney Thunder before returning back home for the Pakistan Super League, where he will represent Quetta Gladiators. It must be noted that Hasnain was accused of chucking during a Big Bash League (BBL) match against Sydney Sixers on January 15. The incident occurred during the first innings of the match after Sixers’ captain Moises Henriques failed to connect when Hasnain bowled a bouncer. Words were exchanged between the duo, with Henriques telling Hasnain “nice throw, mate”.

According to the ICC rules and regulations, an illegal bowling action is where a player is throwing rather than bowling the ball. This is defined by the ICC as being where the player’s elbow extends by an amount of more than 15 degrees between their arm reaching the horizontal and the ball being released.

If the umpire deems that the ball has been thrown, they will call a no-ball which means the batsman cannot be given out from that delivery. Chucking is considered illegal in cricket as it gives an unfair advantage to the bowler. Following the test, if the bend in the elbow is shown to be within 15 degrees of flex, they can continue to bowl.
