ICC to apply more scrutiny to suspect actions
MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — The International Cricket Council says suspect bowling actions should be scrutinized more closely and plans to review its testing and reporting procedures.
ICC general manager of cricket Geoff Allardice told a meeting of the ICC cricket committee in Melbourne on Wednesday that “there’s enough bowlers with suspect actions that should be being scrutinized, that probably haven’t been.”
Allardice said the cricket committee will review the situation over the next few months, and report back to the chief executives’ committee in October with recommendations.
Those suggestions could include ongoing screening of bowlers who have passed initial biomechanical tests after being reported, and better reporting processes.
