Pacer Al Amin gets clearance to bowl


PV Sports Desk : Bangladesh Cricket Team pace bowler Al Amin Hossain has been cleared to resume bowling as the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) Bowling Action Review Committee (BARC) found his action sufficiently rectified.
BCB BARC on Thursday cleared Al Amin, who was reported for suspected bowling action during the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) T20 in November-December 2017.
A subsequent analysis of the bowler’s action confirmed that the extension of his elbow was beyond the ICC’s acceptable limit of 15 degrees in certain deliveries and Al Amin was banned to bowl in domestic matches until he made necessary corrections.
The 28-year old pacer Al Amin underwent a correctional programme under a local coach Mohammad Salahuddin before the retesting of BARC on January 7 and finally he got clearance to continue his bowling.
“The technical assessment found no extension outside what is allowed. He [Al Amin Hossain] is now free to bowl in matches and competitions,” said BCB BARC chairman Mohammed Jalal Yunus adding that the report of the retest has shown significant improvement.
