Bangladesh captain Mashrafe seeks justice for ICC-suspended pacer Taskin
Bangladesh Captain Mashrafe Bin Mortaza and his men are confident that banned pacer Taskin Ahmed's bowling action is flawless.

Mashrafe has pleaded for justice for the tall young pacer while the team is looking up to the BCB to come up with a solution.

The Tigers have accepted the ICC's verdict on the other suspended bowler Arafat Sunny. But the decision to bar Taskin has come as a big shock to the players and support staff.

Later on Saturday, they held a four-hour-long meeting at the team hotel in Bengaluru to discuss what steps they could take against the decision.

Mashrafe expressed his frustration in a press conference at M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Sunday ahead of their World Twenty20 Super 10 match against Australia, which is scheduled for Monday evening.

"We still believe that Taskin is alright. Whatever we want to say, we will talk to the BCB. The BCB will decide what to do, and talk to the ICC or whoever (else). I can just hope Taskin will get justice," Mashrafe said.

"We have clarified our stance to the board. We want our cricketers to get justice. Taskin's action has no fault, we wanted the board to be clear on that.

"We can't take a decision without the consent of the board. We want the board to take the steps."

The 32-year old captain questioned the ICC's method of assessing Taskin, who had been reported for suspect action following their first-round match against the Netherlands.

"Taskin had not bowled a single illegal ball in the match that led to the test. Now the question is how can he be suspended in a match where he did not bowl any illegal deliveries?

"His bowling test also had issues. His yorkers had no problems, neither did his length deliveries. The problem was with 2-3 bouncers.

"They (ICC) have told many bowlers that they won't be able to bowl a bouncer or doosra. But that was not the case here. He did not bowl any bouncer in the match in question. Then why was he called for the test?"

Mashrafe called on the BCB and ICC to settle the matter.
