Bangladesh’s Sunny, Taskin reported for suspect bowling action

Dubai, March 10 (IANS) Bangladesh off-spinner Arafat Sunny and fast bowler Taskin Ahmed have been reported for suspect bowling actions during their side’s opening match in the World Twenty20 against the Netherlands, the International Cricket Council (ICC) said in a release on Thursday.

On Wednesday Bangladesh beat Netherlands by eight runs in a closely fought qualifying contest in Dharamsala in India.

The ICC is presently working with the Bangladesh cricket team management to confirm times for the independent testing of both bowlers at the ICC-accredited testing centre in Chennai.

“The ICC regulations state every reasonable effort shall be made for the independent assessment to be carried out and the independent assessment report furnished within a period of seven days from the date of receipt of the match officials’ report,” the release added.

Both players are however, free to continue bowling until the test results come out.
