Earlier, Arafat Sunny was suspected for illegal bowling action during the ICC World Twenty/20 in India.

Whereas Kevon Cooper of Khulna Titans has been reported for his illegal bowling action several times. He was officially reported during the Indian Premier League- IPL in 2014 and Pakistan Super league- PSL, last year. There was doubt over his bowling action regularly that is why he is seen in the domestic Twenty/20 leagues only. He does not get to play in the first class cricket let alone the national team. Therefore he have played 148 twenty/20s, but only two first class matches and 16 list A matches.
