Absent of Arafat, Taskin a big blow: Mashrafe

Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Bin Mortaza has voiced his substantial disappointment and disbelief at the suspension of his two key bowlers in the midst of Bangladesh's World T20 campaign, according to cricinfo.com.
Mashrafe described the news as a "big blow" and said he found the ruling on Taskin - in particular - hard to swallow. Earlier, on Saturday, the team had been hit by the news that the bowling actions of left-arm spinner Arafat Sunny and left-arm paceman Taskin Ahmed were found to be illegal. "We are very upset with the decision," he said. "It's very disappointing.
We still believe that Taskin is alright. The system - I don't know. We can't do anything at the moment. We have to go through the process," source the cricket website.
Pacer Taskin had been particularly crucial to Bangladesh's limited-overs sides. He had taken the new ball in each of the team's World T20 games so far, and had also been effective during the Asia Cup, where he maintained an economy rate of 5.75 across 16 overs.
"These two bowlers have done very well for us," Mashrafe said. "Taskin - in the last eight matches - has been outstanding. He has been outstanding all over the world. His economy rate is less than 6. It is a big blow. Sunny has been bowling well also.
"The team is very disappointed, and Taskin and Sunny are obviously disappointed. The whole team is behind them. At the moment it's very difficult to understand, and tell them that everything will be alright. As a group, the coaching staff and players are helping them cope. All that we can wish and pray is that they fight it out and come back and play for Bangladesh." Discussions are understood to have taken place at the BCB on whether the results of the ICC test - conducted in Chennai - can be challenged.
There is no firm word from the board yet, but it is almost certain Taskin cannot be cleared before the end of the World T20. He and Sunny were still with the team on Sunday. "Whatever we want to say, we will talk to BCB," Mashrafe said. "BCB will decide what to do, and talk to the ICC or whoever. But we still believe that Taskin - at least - is alright, and that Taskin can bowl."
The suspensions, which were announced two days before Bangladesh's match against Australia, have also left the Bangladesh squad short of bowling options.
Mustafizur Rahman had been doubtful for the game, as he continues to recover from a side strain, but now has no choice but to play on Monday, Mashrafe said. "Even if Mustafizur is at 20 per cent fitness, he has to play. We don't have any players. He is getting better, but coming off that injury is not easy. He could play a supporting role to the main bowler.
