Shillingford suspended after bowling action found illegal

Shillingford suspended for bowling action
Cricket Windies have confirmed on Friday that  Shillingford has been suspended from bowling in domestic cricket after an independent assessment revealed that Shillingford’s deliveries exceeded the 15 degrees level of tolerance permitted under playing regulations.

The release stated that Shillingford will remain suspended until 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.


The fast bowler is expected to undergo remedial work supervised by the Volcanoes franchise and can apply for a re-assessment after modifying his bowling action.

During the first-round match of West Indies’ domestic four-day tournament in St Lucia last month, Shillingford was reported for suspect action. However, he finished a match with a five-wicket haul.

This is the third instance of Shillingford’s bowling action being reported. In December 2010, he was suspended from bowling after his action was found to be illegal following independent analysis in Perth. He underwent remedial action and was cleared by the ICC in June 2011, before being reported again in 2013, during the tour of New Zealand.


Shillingford has featured for Windies in 16 Test where he picked up 70 wickets at an average of 34.55.

Cricket is seen as a unifying force in the West Indies, bringing together players (and supporters) from across the region.
