Islamabad - Mohammad Hafeez's bowling action was cleared by the International Cricket Council on Wednesday, and the Pakistan off-spinner can resume bowling in internationals.

Hafeez was reassessed in Brisbane on November 17, when it was revealed that the amount of elbow extension for all of his offspin deliveries was within the allowed 15-degree level of tolerance.

He was first suspended from bowling in November 2014, and reassessed and permitted to resume bowling in April 2015.

He was reported again in June 2015 during a Test against Sri Lanka at Galle, and was subsequently suspended from bowling for 12 months in July 2015 after an independent assessment revealed he employed an illegal bowling action for the second time in 24 months.

The ICC said in a statement that umpires were still able to report Hafeez if they believe he was displaying a suspect action. To assist the umpires, they will be provided with images and video footage of the bowler's remodelled legal bowling action.

Hafeez has 52 wickets in Tests, 129 in ODIs, and 46 in T20s.
