BCB Review Committee clears Al Amin

  • Print


BSS, Dhaka :
The Bowling Action Review Committee (BARC) of Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has cleared pace bowler Al Amin Hossain to resume bowling as BARC found his bowling action to be sufficiently rectified.
Al Amin was reported for suspected bowling action while playing in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) T20 in November-December 2017.
Subsequent analysis of the bowler's action confirmed extension of the elbow beyond the ICC's acceptable limit of 15 degrees in certain deliveries and Al Amin was not permitted to bowl in domestic matches until necessary corrections had been made, said a BCB press release.
The pacer underwent a remedial programme, which was followed by a retesting under the BARC on January 7.
"The reports of the retest have shown significant improvement," BCB BARC Chairman Mohammed Jalal Yunus said, adding: "The technical assessment found no extension outside what is allowed. He (Al Amin Hossain) is now free to bowl in matches and competitions."
BCB's MIS Manager Nasir Ahmed said: "We've noticed a considerable change from the time he was reported to his bowling in the retest. The elbow extension has come down from almost 20 to 21 degrees in some deliveries to a perfectly acceptable 11 to 12 degrees."
