Islamabad - Pakistan offspinner Mohammad Hafeez believes he doesn't extend his elbow beyond the allowed 15 degrees and will be cleared of a suspect bowling action in England next week.

Match officials reported Hafeez's bowling action after Pakistan won the first Test against New Zealand by 248 runs last week when the offspinner bowled 22 overs.

Hafeez says he was shown his four suspected deliveries and called them "normal."

Hafeez will be tested at Loughborough University on Monday before he flies back to the United Arab Emirates where he will be in contention for the third test, starting Wednesday.

Hafeez was ruled out of the ongoing second Test after he pulled a hamstring during his unbeaten century in the second innings at Abu Dhabi.
