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.

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.
