BCB to review Razzaks action before ICC assessmentFebruary 6th, 2009 - 4:00 pm ICT by ANI
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 Councils (ICC) assessment.
The BCB will be sending the video footage of Razzaks action to experts in Australia.
As per our bowling review committees 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 BCBs cricket operations committee chairman Enayet Hossain, as saying.
Left-arm spinner Razzak was suspended from bowling in international events after on-field umpires Daryl Harper and Asoka de Silva reported his suspect action during the home Test matches against New Zealand played in October last year.
Razzaks 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)
