5 bowlers with the most suspect bowling actions
Cricket has had a story of disputes involving bowling actions. Various bowlers from time to time were described in matches for illegal acts wherever they were found to be circling their arms while bowling. Initially, the bowlers were thought to rotate their arm completely without any bending.
The law was improved, and the bowlers stood given an elbow length of up to 15 degrees.
Spin bowling is a very elaborate art in cricket sport, and bowlers do all kinds of tricks to bother the batsmen. Saqlain Mushtaq from Pakistan held began the ‘Doosra’ which shifted the other way round as exposed to the normal off-break. It lacked a certain length of the elbow to do the delivery. Off spinners assumed that delivery but were considered in trouble for illegal moves. Here are few of the bowlers that had the most suspect bowling moves:
1) Marlon Samuels – West Indies
The extra was listed for a suspicious action in 2008 and was refused for a stop to 4 years. Samuels was allowed to resume in 2011 following remedial work. He has reported again in 2013 and was suspended from bowling his quicker balls, but he could continue the conventional off-spin.
He was again suspended in 2015 from bowling and finally banned for 12 periods as he was described twice inside two years. He meant only a part-time bowler and not the most efficient one yet he was in the rank of things due to the multiple delays.
