Bangladesh fast bowler Taskin Ahmed is all set to appear for the bowling action test in Australia next month, informed the chairman of the Bangladesh Cricket Board’s cricket operations committee Akram Khan yesterday.
Another bowler with a suspect action, left arm spinner Arafat Sunny, who was also preparing to appear for the test, is likely to join Taskin.
“Sunny underwent a bowling test [yesterday] and after getting the result of the test, we will think about the next step. On the other hand, Taskin is almost confirmed and we are looking forward to sending him for the official bowling test,” Akram told the media.
“Most probably he (Taskin) will go to Australia to appear for his bowling action test. We will decide on Sunny after getting the result of [yesterday’s] test and if his report is positive, then we might send him, alongside Taskin, to Australia for the bowling action test,” he said.
Earlier, both Taskin and Sunny were suspended for suspect bowling action during the 2016 World Twenty20 in April this year. Both the bowlers have been working on their actions since then.
Taskin however, took part in the Dhaka Premier League for Abahani Limited this season while Sunny kept himself away from most of the domestic leagues and opted to work on his action on his own.
