Karachi, Oct.31 : The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) cannot be blamed for bowlers with suspect actions, said former cricketer Mohammad Akram.

Commenting on the recent case of Bilal Asif, PakPassion.net quoted Akram, as saying that efforts are being made to root out this problem by checking players at the Under 16 and Under 19 level.

He said players with illegal actions are being told that they won’t be allowed to play if they don’t rework their suspect bowling actions.

Akram, who recently resigned from the National Cricket Academy for family reasons, said Pakistan coaches fail to spot suspect actions because they don’t have the required equipment to do so.

Bilal was reported for his bowling actions by ICC match officials after third ODI against Zimbabwe, where he claimed five wickets. (ANI)
