Mohammad Hasnain made the most of his chances whenever he got to don the Pakistan jersey in the last couple of years. He is still looking to find his feet at the highest level due to the emergence of many fast bowlers in the country. As of now, Hasnain is trying to make an impact in the ongoing Big Bash League (BBL).

While Mohammad Hasnain is looking forward to having a memorable BBL season, there is bad news for him regarding his bowling action. As per a report in ESPN Cricinfo, Hasnain’s action was reported by the umpires and he is set to undergo the test for the same.

The tall speedster, who is currently representing Sydney Thunder will now need to undergo the test at the Cricket’s governing body’s accredited biomechanics laboratory in Lahore. This means that the 21-year-old has no choice but to fly back to his home country.

Mohammad Hasnain was roped in by Sydney Thunder as England pacer Sakib Mahmood’s replacement. He was on the attack right from the word ‘go’ as he impressed one and all with figures of 4/22 on his BBL debut against Brisbane Heat, where the Sydney-based franchise emerged triumphant by 53 runs.

The Pakistani pacer was originally scheduled to undergo a test on his action on Wednesday, January 19 in Australia itself before it was eventually decided that the youngster would need to get the tests done in Lahore.

In the five matches that he got to feature in for Sydney Thunder in this year’s Big Bash League, Mohammad Hasnain registered seven scalps, averaging 15.71. He went wicketless in Thunder’s last encounter against local rivals as well as the defending champions Sydney Sixers.
