The former World Cup-winning fast bowler said that there is no confusion that Pakistan need Hafeez's all-around skills as he served the national team very well.
He can apply for a reassessment after modifying his bowling action. His action was first reported in November 2014 and after initial suspension he was allowed to bowl again in April 2015. In a different time, Hafeez's action was called in Australia as well - back in 2005 - while just before he was reported in November 2014, he was also reported in a Champions League T20 game in India. He remodelled his action in 2015 and a couple of months later it was found illegal against in a test against Sri Lanka at Galle.
