Kolkata: Dec 11, 2013
Bengal medium pacer Manojit Ghosh, who was reported of suspect action, has been barred from playing any Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) organised tournaments.
“BCCI’s suspect action review committee found the extension of his [Ghosh] arm and elbow above permissible level and he should undergo rehabilitation. He’s barred from playing the BCCI tournaments till his action is cleared,” BCCI’s chief administrative officer Ratnakar Shetty wrote in a letter to the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB).
Now the onus is with Bengal to correct Ghosh’s action before being cleared by the National Cricket Academy (NCA) for the seamer to play again.
Bengal coach Ashok Malhotra said he would try to correct his action after the end of the season.
“I came to know of the decision today itself. I will sit with the pacer as soon as the Ranji ties are over,” Malhotra said.
