West Indies bowler, Ronsford Beaton, has been reported for illegal bowling action during the ongoing 3-ODI series against New Zealand. Playing his second ODI for West Indies, Beaton will now have to undergo testing within 14 days in an ICC accredited centre.

He was reported in the second ODI against New Zealand at Christchurch where he recorded figures of 1 for 60. He remained wicket less in his debut game at Whangarei. As per ICC regulations, Beaton can continue bowl until the test results of his action arrive, which means he can participate in the third and final ODI in Christchurch on December 26.

According to ICC rulebook, illegal action is ”where the Player’s Elbow Extension exceeds 15 degrees, measured using the Standard Analysis Protocols from the point at which the bowling arm reaches the horizontal until the point at which the ball is released. Any Elbow Hyperextension shall be discounted for the purposes of determining an Illegal Bowling Action.”

West Indies so far have been winless on this tour.
