Bangladesh fast bowler Al-Amin Hossain has been reported for suspect bowling action in the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League (BPL). He is part of Comilla Victorians franchise in the T20 competition and was part of the game played on November 28. He picked up a wicket of Ariful Haque of Khulna Titans in the 15th over and the same delivery has raised a suspicion on his bowling action now. However, this is not the first time when the bowler’s action has been questioned by the umpires.

Hossain was last reported in August 2014 but was cleared by International Cricket Council (ICC) after a test in the ICC-accredited centre in Chennai. Also, BPL has the history of the bowlers being reported for the suspect bowling action. In the previous season, West Indian all-rounder Kevon Cooper and Arafat Sunny were pulled up for their illegal bowling action. Both the cricketers are playing the ongoing season this year.

14 days to respond

Al-Amin Hossain now has 14 days to respond to the bowling action review committee of Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB). The BPL chairman Jalal Yunus cleared that the procedure will be handled as per the rules of ICC and his bowling action will be reviewed after 14 days until which he will be allowed to bowl. The good news for the bowler is he will be available for his side until the end of the tournament as the league ends in the second week of December (December 12).

“Al-Amin was reported for one delivery from the November 28 game. The next step would be as per ICC’s rulings in these cases. Al-Amin’s bowling action will be reviewed after 14 days,” Jalal Yunus was quoted as saying by ESPNCricinfo. Comilla Victorians are at the top of the table currently and there is every chance that the team might reach the final of the tournament. Hossain is also bowling really well and scalped three wickets in the last game.
