Jamaica and West Indies allrounder Marlon Samuels, has been relieved of bowling duties pending an ICC assessment of his current bowling actions, that was reported in the final Test on the tour to Sri Lanka.
The West Indian has allowed the 14 day period, post reporting of his action, in which an assessment could have been done, to elapse.
This assessment would provide eligibility for him to continue to bowl in international cricket. The cut date was on November 1, 2015, having been reported on October 19, 2015.
Jamaican and West Indies all-rounder Marlon Samuels bowling has been once again called scrutiny after he was reported for a suspect action during the 1st Test match between Sri Lanka and the West Indies in Galle.
This is the third time in his career that he is brought under scrutiny.
On the two previous occasions, 2008 when his action saw him being suspended from bowling for two years and again he was reported in November 2013; cleared in December, but banned from bowling quicker deliveries.
Bridgetown, Barbados: The Barbados Tridents lost for the first time in this year’s Hero Caribbean Premier League as they were defeated by the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. A superb innings of 82 from Keiron Pollard was not enough to see the Tridents to victory as they suffered only their second home defeat in CPL history. The highest score in the Patriots innings was just 27 but a cameo innings from Carlos Brathwaite and early wickets for Sheldon Cottrell gave the Patriots their first win.
