Beaton reported for suspect action

first_imgCMC – CHRISTMAS celebrations for West Indies were marred, after news broke on Sunday that Ronsford Beaton has been reported for a suspect bowling action.The ICC, the sport’s world governing body, said in a media release that the 25-year-old fast bowler was reported following the second One-day International against New Zealand which the Windies lost by 204 runs on Saturday at Hagley Oval.Beaton ended the match with figures of 1-60 from eight overs and the match officials’ report, which was handed over to the management team of the Caribbean side following the game, cited concerns about the legality of his bowling action.Beaton’s bowling action will now be scrutinised further under the ICC process relating to suspected illegal bowling actions reported in Tests, ODIs and Twenty20 Internationals.He is required to undergo testing within 14 days, and, during this period, Beaton is permitted to continue bowling in international cricket until the results of the testing are known.West Indies trail 0-2 in the three-match series, after the Black Caps also won the first ODI two days earlier at Cobham Oval by five wickets.

Pooran must use incident as a `learning experience’-CWI president

first_imgST JOHN’S, Antigua, (CMC) – Cricket West Indies (CWI) president, Ricky Skerritt, says under-fire batsman Nicholas Pooran must use the ball tampering incident as a “learning experience”.The 24-year-old Pooran was on Wednesday slapped with a four-match ban by the International Cricket Council after pleading guilty to “changing the condition of the ball” during West Indies’ five-wicket win in the third One-Day International on Monday in Lucknow.Television footage showed Pooran using his thumbnail to “scratch the surface of the ball”, a charge he subsequently admitted to after being reported by on-field umpires, along with the third and fourth officials.“Mr Pooran is a young player who has made a grave error of judgement,” Skerritt said in a statement Wednesday.“He will suffer the penalty and will be missed from the team as a result. I am confident that this situation will be used by Pooran, and all concerned in CWI, as a learning experience.”The ban rules Pooran out of the three-match Twenty20 International against Afghanistan starting next month, and the first T20I of three-match series against India next month.Further, the incident takes some of the shine off West Indies’ first one-day series win in five years and the subsequent whitewash.The Caribbean side beat Afghanistan by seven wickets in the opening ODI last Thursday before clinching the series with a 47-run victory last Saturday.last_img read more
