The bowling actions of six first-class Bangladesh bowlers have been declared illegal by the board's Bowling Review Advisory group.

Saifullah Khan, Kamrul Hasan, Imran Parvez, Wascoroni Ahmed, Sharifullah, Kamaluddin were banned from bowling in the 2006-07 season and asked to rectify their actions. But on re-assessing video footage of each of the bowlers, the review advisors have recommended to the board that their actions continue to be suspect.

A list of bowlers with suspect actions was compiled by domestic umpires over the last two seasons and handed to the advisory group.

Only Chittagong's Rezaul Karim was cleared to bowl. Four others - Faisal Hossain, Farhad Hossain, Ashraful Khan, Yasin Arafat - are under further observation and will be allowed to bowl in the 2007-08 season. However, this decision is flexible and a bowler can be banned for life if his bowling action is reported again.
