​The International Cricket Council  announced that assessments have found the bowling actions of  Sunny and Taskin  to be illegal and both the bowlers have been suspended from bowling in international cricket with immediate effect.

Assessments of Arafat’s analysis revealed that for majority of his deliveries the elbow extension had exceeded the 15 degrees’ level of tolerance permitted under the ICC Regulations for the Review of Bowlers Reported with Suspected Illegal Bowling Actions, while not all of Taskin’s deliveries were legal.

Accordance to Article 6.1 of the ICC Regulations, Arafat’s and Taskin’s international suspensions will also be recognised and enforced by all the Members for domestic cricket events played in their own jurisdiction. However, with the consent of Bangladesh Cricket Board, the two bowlers may be able to play in domestic cricket events played in Bangladesh under its auspices.
