Taskin Ahmed suspension upheld by judicial commissioner

Bangladesh fast bowler Taskin Ahmed’s suspension from bowing in international cricket was today upheld by a judicial commissioner following a review hearing.

The ICC said in a release that Taskin had “exercised his right to request an expeditious review of his case by a judicial commissioner” after his suspension for an illegal bowling action.

The hearing was conducted yesterday by Michael Beloff QC over a tele-conference call that lasted several hours and in which numerous legal challenges were made on behalf of the player.

Having carefully considered those arguments and the responses of the ICC, Mr Beloff has now notified all parties concerned of his decision that Taskin’s suspension from bowling in international cricket shall be upheld and indicated that a written reasoned decision will be provided in due course.

In the meantime, Taskin, at any time following appropriate remedial work, can apply to the ICC for a re-assessment of his bowling action.

Taskin and his teammate, left-arm spinner Arafat Sunny, were reported for suspected illegal bowling action by the match officials during Bangladesh’s opening match of the ICC World Twenty20 against the Netherlands in Dharamsala.
