BCB to appeal to review for Taskin
20 March 2016, Nirapad News: Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) will appeal to International Cricket Council (ICC) to review the suspension order against Bangladesh fast bowler Taskin Ahmed.
BCB president Nazmul Hasan disclosed the matter to journalists in a press briefing at his Gulshan residence in city Sunday afternoon (March 20).
He further said they took the decision in a board meeting to appeal against the ICC’s decision to suspend Taskin Ahmed from bowling in international matches.
He also hoped ICC would consider the matter meticulously.
BCB sources said the decision to review was taken after counsel of board lawyers.
The sources also said BCB was mulling about taking legal actions if ICC do not accept review appeal.
In a statement on Saturday (March 19), ICC announced that independent assessments have found the bowling actions of Bangladesh’s Arafat Sunny and Taskin Ahmed to be illegal and, as such, both the bowlers have been suspended from bowling in international cricket with immediate effect.
The statement also said Arafat’s analysis revealed that the elbow extension for majority of his deliveries had exceeded the 15 degrees’ level of tolerance permitted under the ICC Regulations for the Review of Bowlers Reported with Suspected Illegal Bowling Actions, while not all of Taskin’s deliveries were legal.
