Williamson reported over suspect action

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, CMC – New Zealand off-spinner Kane Williamson has been reported for having a suspected illegal bowling action, the International Cricket Council confirmed yesterday.

The part-time bowler was reported at the end of the second Test against West Indies at Queen’s Park Oval, by umpires Ian Gould, Richard Illingworth and Rod Tucker, along with match referee Chris Broad. In a report handed over to the New Zealand team manager on Friday, the umpires raised concern over a number of deliveries by the off-spinner.

Under ICC stipulations, Williamson’s action will now have to be tested within 21 days. However, he will be allowed to continue bowling until the results of the tests are known.

Williamson sent down 14 overs during the second Test, taking a single wicket.
