FE Online Desk
The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Friday announced that independent assessments found the bowling actions of Bangladesh’s Taskin Ahmed and Arafat Sunny to be legal.
The ICC also said, in a statement published in its website, that following remedial work and re-assessments both bowlers can now resume bowling in international cricket, effective immediately.
At the re-assessments, which were carried out at the National Cricket Centre in Brisbane on 8 September, it was revealed that the amount of elbow extension in all of Taskin and Arafat's deliveries were now within the 15-degree level of tolerance permitted under the ICC regulations, the statement said.
Earlier on March 19 this year, ICC announced their bowling action illegal and suspended them from bowling in international cricket. –RH
