West Indies fast bowler, Ronsford Beaton.

Guyana Jaguars fast bowler Ronsford Beaton has been reported for illegal bowling and, as such, he has been suspended from bowling in domestic West Indies matches with immediate effect.

This was disclosed by Cricket West Indies (CWI), who said an assessment revealed that Beaton’s deliveries exceeded the 15 degrees level of tolerance permitted under playing regulations.

Beaton will remain suspended until such time as his action is found to be legal, either by an Opinion Report from Loughborough University, London or by an independent and analysis from an accredited testing center, in accordance with the CWI Regulations for Dealing with Suspected illegal bowling.

Beaton, 25, was reported for a suspect bowling action during the Jaguar’s game against the United States recently in the Colonial Medical Insurance Super50 Cup.

Beaton’s action was cited by match officials after he bowled eight overs for 37 runs without taking a wicket during the game at the Queen’s Park Oval, in Trinidad which the Jaguars won by 13 runs.
