The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has implored to the ICC to reconsider Taskin Ahmed’s suspension from bowling in international cricket. BCB President Nazmul Hassan is confident that the pacer will be playing the remaining matches In ICC world T20 tournament. Taskin Ahmed and spinner Arafat Sunny were suspended from bowling in international matches after ICC assessments found their actions illegal on Saturday. This decision surprised the board.

“Bowling is our strongest suit in this major tournament. The suspension is a huge blow for us.It’s not like that we are playing for the first time in the World Cup.” BCB President Nazmul Hassan said.

Sources says that Nazmul Hassan spoke to the ICC chairman Shashank Manohar and chief executive Dave Richardson. Hassan said the BCB was trying to evade the normal procedure of appealing. They want quick overturn the decision made on Taskin. Though, The ICC had said that “not all of Taskin’s deliveries were legal”.

“We are trying to do something outside the normal procedure where the player requests a reassessment, which we feel is a complex process. I don’t think we can do anything more that what we have done. I believe that the ICC will observe our points and give a logical reply.” hassan said.

In their remaining Super 10 matches, Bangladesh will play against Australia today and hosts India on Wednesday in Bengaluru. They will head to Kolkata for their last Group 2 match against New Zealand on Mar 26.
