Two bowlers reported for suspected illegal bowling actions at ICC Women’’s World CupMarch 9th, 2009 - 3:00 pm ICT by ANI
Dubai, Mar.9 (ANI): England fast bowler Jenny Gunn and Sri Lanka off-spinner Rose Fernando have been reported because of suspected illegal actions.
The two bowlers were reported by umpires Gerard Abood and Kathy Cross at the conclusion of their ICC Womens World Cup 2009 match which England won by 100 runs at the Manuka Oval, Canberra on Saturday.
In their report the umpires raised concerns over the Gunns short-pitched deliveries and Fernandos quicker balls and decided it was appropriate for their deliveries to be scrutinised further under the relevant ICC process.
That process states that any bowler reported in this way will be dealt with by the relevant Member board as per ICC regulations for womens ODIs below:
Where a bowler is called or reported by the umpires as having a suspected illegal action, the ICC will advise the Member board of this fact.
In such circumstances, the Member will be asked to instigate an immediate assessment of the bowlers action and to arrange for the undertaking of any remedial action required by the player concerned.
The Member will be asked to report back formally to ICC as to what action has been taken, and the results.
A dated database of bowlers who have been called and/or reported as suspect will be maintained.
The detail of the subsequent action taken by the Member will also be detailed on this database which will regularly be made available to all match officials for such international cricket matches.
Pending the result of the assessment, the two bowlers may continue to play and bowl in international cricket. (ANI)
