Bilal Asif under the Scope: Once again ICC Suspects another Pakistan Star's Bowling Action

Bilal Asif, Pakistan's star performer in the third one-day international against Zimbabwe, has been reported on Tuesday for a suspect bowling action, ESPNcricinfo reported.

Offspinner Asif outlined his potential value to Pakistan ahead of upcoming games against England as his five-wicket haul clinched the third and decisive one-dayer against Zimbabwe a day before.

Playing in just his second ODI, Asif decimated the Zimbabwe line-up with figures of 5 for 25 as the hosts were bowled out for 161, then scored 38 as Pakistan chased their target in 34 overs to win by seven wickets.

The 30-year-old was a late addition to Pakistan's ODI squad at the behest of Test captain Misbah-ul-Haq, who felt the offspinner could come in handy against England's slew of left-handers in a three-match series that starts on October 13.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) is expected to issue a formal notice in this regard shortly.
