Earlier on September 8, expecting clean chit, Taskin and Sunny faced their bowling action test at an ICC accredited laboratory ‘Brisbane National Cricket Centre’.
Taskin Ahmed’s re-test was held around 10:00am (Bangladesh Time) and later posted a photo with a caption “Just finished the exams… waiting for the result. Please keep us in your prayer”.
Left-arm spinner Arafat Sunny finished the examination around 1:00pm (Bangladesh Time).
Both the bowlers got the company of Bangladesh head coach Chandika Hathurusinghe during their bowling assessment.
The result of the tests are expected to be revealed by the ICC through media release within two to three weeks. It is expected that the results will be made by September 22.
If both the bowlers get the clearance, only Taskin will be reappearing in the international cricket with the Bangladesh ODI series against Afghanistan, as he has been included in the Tigers squad for the series, starting on September 25.
Taskin and Sunny were reported for suspected bowling actions during the World T20, and were suspended following a test at an ICC-accredited centre in Chennai in March.
