Abdur Razzak's bowling action will be independently reviewed in Australia before the left-arm spinner faces an ICC assessment. Razzak, who was suspended from bowling in international cricket in December for a suspect action, bowled in the recent domestic Premier Division Twenty20 Tournament after working with local experts.

Video footage of Razzak's action will be sent to experts in Australia. "As per our bowling review committee's observation his action has improved but we need to take suggestions from experts, which is why we sent the footage to Australia," Enayet Hossain Siraj, the BCB's cricket operations committee chairman, said. "It's actually a precautionary measure before sending him [Razzak] to the ICC."

Razzak was reported after the home Tests against New Zealand last October by on-field umpires Daryl Harper and Asoka de Silva. An independent analysis conducted by the ICC, also in Australia, confirmed his action was suspect. According to the report, Razzak's elbow extension ranged between 22 to 28 degrees, averaging 25 degrees; his quicker ball ranged from 22 to 28 degrees with an average of 24 degrees. The ICC rules allow bending the arm up to 15 degrees.
