Good news for Shillingford

Dhaka: There’s good news for West Indies as off-spinner Shane Shillingford can resume bowling in international cricket. The International Cricket Council, on Tuesday, confirmed that following a remedial work, an independent test has found Shillingford’s bowling action to be legal.

His off-break and arm-balls were re-tested at the University of Western Australia in Perth back on March 4 and the elbow extension measured for each of his deliveries was within the 15-degree level of tolerance permitted under the ICC regulations for the review of bowlers reported with suspected illegal bowling actions, an ICC media release stated.

Shillingford, who was reported at the end of play on Day II in the Mumbai Test versus India last November, has confirmed he will no longer bowl the doosra. Therefore, his doosra will remain an illegal delivery and he won’t be able to bowl it in international cricket.
