Dhaka, Dec.1 : Bangladesh spinner Abdur Razzak has been banned from bowling due to an illegal action, a Bangladesh Cricket Board official said on Monday.
According to The News, the ban will be effective until he corrects his action.
The official said that Razzak was assessed by Marc Portusa, a member of the International Cricket Council (ICC) panel of human movement specialists at the Australian Institute of Sports (AIS) on November 17 and it was deemed that the action was suspect.
The left-arm spinner's bowling action was reported as suspect during the two-test series against New Zealand in October and therefore he was not chosen for the series against South Africa.
The 26-year-old has taken seven wickets in five Test matches and claimed 111 wickets in 81 one-day internationals.
