BDFlag 1 Year Anniversary of Taskin's Vindication

Well still a day to go, but exactly a year ago, Taskin overcame the great injustice of being banned from a global tournament halfway through. A tragic miscarriage of justice was finally corrected albeit 6 months too late. Slow motion videos show no discernible change in his action before and after the ban which of course raises questions as to how accurately the ICC measures these things to begin with. What is the sensitivity of the testing instruments?

Zimbabwe's Brian Vitori failed, passed, and again failed the bowling test in the space of just 10 months! Not to mention the ICC had to re-instate Kusal Perrera after independent biochemists proved that the substance found in his sample could have been produced via normal physiological reactions in the concentrations found.

Arafat Sunny was also cleared - but everyone knew he was always chucking.
