Islamabad - Suspended off-spinners Saeed Ajmal and Mohammad Hafeez will fly out to India later this week to have unofficial tests on their illegal bowling actions.

Pakistan Cricket Board chairperson Shaharyar Khan says both players have opted to go to the ICC-accredited biomechanics laboratory in Chennai within the next two days.

If Ajmal and Hafeez get favourable results, Khan says the PCB will then ask the International Cricket Council to conduct official tests on their bowling actions.

Ajmal was suspended in September while Hafeez was banned from bowling in international cricket earlier this month after his action was found to be illegal during the first Test against New Zealand.

Khan hopes both players can still make Pakistan's squad for the 2015 World Cup, starting February 14.
