Raipur: Having faced the heat of 'chucking' himself, all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez termed teammate and ace spinner Saeed Ajmal's suspension for illegal bowling action as a "difficult thing not only for Pakistan but for the entire cricket (world)".

"This is a tough thing not only for Pakistan but for rest of the cricket (world) as he is the number one bowler. It's too early to comment on this as PCB is looking into the issue," said Hafeez in a reply to query on Ajmal's suspension over chucking. (Pakistan Bowling Finished Without Ajmal)
