Comilla Victorians and Bangladesh paceman Al Amin Hossain has been reported for a suspect bowling action in the BPL 2017.
The right-arm pacer’s dismissal of Khulna Titans’ Ariful Haque in the 15th over of the game Tuesday at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Cricket Stadium in Chittagong raised suspicion.
Al Amin will now get two weeks to reply to BCB’s bowling action review committee but is eligible to bowl until then.
"Al Amin was reported for a delivery from the November 28 game," Jalal Younus, the BPL chairman and technical committee head, said Monday. "The next step would be as per ICC's rulings in these cases. Al-Amin's bowling action will be reviewed after 14 days."
This is not the first time Al Amin has been reported for a suspect bowling action. He was previously reported in August three years ago and following a test at an ICC-accredited laboratory in Chennai, he was given the green signal to bowl in November, 2014.
Al Amin has played all of Comilla’s nine matches so far this season, taking seven wickets conceding 225 runs, at an average of 32.14.
In the fourth edition of the money-spinning tournament, the West Indies’ Kevon Cooper and spinner Arafat Sunny were also reported for suspect bowling action but both bowlers are now taking part in the BPL this season.
