He had requested for a review after a suspension was slapped on him for faulty bowling action.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) said in a media release on Wednesday that his suspension has been upheld following a review hearing conducted by a judicial commissioner.

“Taskin may, at any time following appropriate remedial work, apply to the ICC for a re-assessment of his bowling action, which shall be carried out in the same manner as the initial independent assessment,” reads the ICC statement.

The paceman was reported for suspected illegal bowling actions by match officials during the Mar 9 match between Bangladesh and Netherlands.

An independent assessment, at the ICC-accredited testing centre in India’s Chennai on Mar 15, found that some of Taskin’s deliveries exceeded the permissible level of elbow extension.

The Bangladesh bowler requested a review by a judicial commissioner, which was conducted on Tuesday by Michael Beloff QC through a tele-conference, said the ICC.

It said that the conference lasted for several hours, in which ‘numerous legal challenges were made on behalf of the player.’
