Billy Root Suspended from Bowling
Glamorgan’s Billy Root has been suspended from bowling in competitive county cricket after his bowling action was reviewed under the ECB’s process for Bowlers with Suspect Actions.
Root’s bowling action was subject to an independent assessment, as set out under the ECB regulations for the review of bowlers reported with suspected illegal bowling actions, on Wednesday 8 May 2019.
The report from the assessment was received by the ECB on Friday 17 May 2019 and concluded that Root’s bowling action displayed elbow extension in excess of the permitted 15 degrees.
Root has therefore been banned from bowling for England and in competitive county cricket from 17 May 2019 until such time he has submitted a fresh independent assessment in which it is concluded that he has remedied his action.
