KARACHI- Mohammad Hafeez will fly to England next week to undergo biomechanic tests after he was reported for a suspect bowling action during a match against New Zealand in Abu Dhabi earlier this month.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said that Hafeez had been released from the squad and would appear for the tests on his action on November 24.

"If he is match fit he will return to Dubai to join the team for the remaining part of the series against New Zealand," a PCB official said.

Hafeez was dropped for the second test due to a hamstring problem which he sustained after his bowling action had been reported in the first match.

The 34-year-old has been a key feature of Pakistan's limited overs squads over the last few years due to his ability to bowl effective off breaks coupled with his top order batting.
