Hamilton (Bermuda): Bermuda off-spinner Allan Douglas Junior has been found to have a legal bowling action after undergoing a Home Board Analysis, the International Cricket Council (ICC) has said.
Douglas, who captains club side Cleveland County, was reported for a suspect action by the umpires during a match against Singapore at the Pepsi ICC Division Three tournament in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in October when Bermuda were relegated -- along with the US -- to Division Four, reports CMC.
Under the ICC Regulations for the Review of Bowlers, Douglas was required to submit to a Home Board Analysis, with a written report of the outcome to be provided cricket’s governing body.
Douglas is now permitted to continue bowling in international cricket.
But if he is reported again within the next two years, Douglas will be required to submit to an ICC Analysis.
The Bermuda Cricket Board was given 21 days to submit a report on Douglas’ action after it was reported as suspect, with the deadline then extended for another two weeks.
The ICC has been clamping down recently on suspect bowling actions of bowlers at Test level, mostly off-spinners.
