BCB to review Razzak's action before ICC assessment

Posted By: Staff

Dhaka, Feb.6 (ANI): The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has decided to review the bowling action of spinner Abdur Razzak before he faces an International Cricket Council's (ICC) assessment.

The BCB will be sending the video footage of Razzak's action to experts in Australia.

"As per our bowling review committee's observation his action has improved but we need to take suggestions from experts, which is why we sent the footage to Australia," The Daily Times quoted the BCB's cricket operations committee chairman Enayet Hossain, as saying.

Left-arm spinner Razzak was suspended from bowling in international events after n-field umpires Daryl Harper and Asoka de Silva reported his suspect action during the ome Test matches against New Zealand played in October last year.

Razzak's elbow extension ranged between 22 to 28 degrees, averaging 25 degrees, and his quicker ball ranged from 22 to 28 degrees with an average of 24 degrees, while the ICC rules allow bending of the arm up to 15 degrees. (ANI)
