The International Cricket Council (ICC) on 16 March 2016 suspended Bangladesh’s Arafat Sunny and Taskin from bowling in international cricket.

As per the suspension orders, while the two bowlers will be barred from bowling in international cricket, they may be able to play in domestic cricket events played in Bangladesh with the consent of Bangladesh Cricket Board.

The suspensions were enforced after independent assessments found the bowling actions of the two bowlers to be illegal. The assessments were performed in early March 2016 at the ICC-accredited testing centre in Chennai.

Why they were suspended?

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.
