Developments in local cricket: Guyana’s Ronsford Beaton cleared to resume bowling
Guyanese fast bowler Ronsford Beaton has been cleared to resume bowling in international and regional cricket, a Cricket West Indies (CWI) missive revealed on Wednesday.
This development comes following an assessment of a remodeled bowling action.
Beaton’s bowling action was assessed by officials at Loughborough University in England, where it was found to be within acceptable limits.
The assessment was required after Beaton’s action was reported back in March by match officials during the West Indies Championship fourth-round match between Guyana Harpy Eagles and Jamaica Scorpions at the Guyana National Stadium.
Following this development, an assessment was conducted, by officials at Loughborough University, and Beaton’s bowling action was found to be illegal.
In line with CWI’s approved process for dealing with illegal bowling actions, Beaton underwent remedial work to remodel his action, and video footage was sent to Loughborough University for analysis using an Opinion Report which was conducted earlier this month. The fast bowler has subsequently been cleared to resume bowling.
