Spinner Jason Campbell suspended from bowling
Cricket West Indies (CWI) has confirmed that an Opinion Report by an Independent Assessor at Loughborough University has found the bowling action of Leeward Islands Hurricanes’ left-arm spinner Jason Campbell to be illegal and, as such, he has been suspended from bowling in domestic West Indies matches with immediate effect.
The assessment revealed that Campbell’s deliveries exceeded the 15 degrees level of tolerance permitted under playing regulations.
Campbell will remain suspended until such time as his action is found to be legal, either by an Opinion Report from Loughborough University or by an independent analysis from an accredited testing centre, in accordance with the CWI Regulations for Dealing with Suspected Illegal Bowling Actions.
He is expected to undergo remedial work supervised by the Hurricanes franchise and can apply for a reassessment after modifying his bowling action in accordance with the Regulations.
Campbell, 34, was reported for a suspect bowling action during the final of Colonial Medical Insurance Super50 Cup between the Hurricanes and champions West Indies Emerging Players last Sunday.
The Nevisian’s action was cited by match officials after he bowled 10 overs for figures of 0-53 during the contest at the Queen’s Park Oval in Trinidad, which the Emerging Players won by 205 runs to take the title. (CWI)
