ST JOHN’S – Legendary former captain Sir Vivian Richards believes someone in the current West Indies set-up should have picked up on fast bowler Ronsford Beaton’s suspect action before he reached international level.

Beaton was reported to the International Cricket Council for a suspect bowling action, following the second One-Day International against New Zealand in Christchurch last week.

The 25-year-old Guyanese had made his debut in the first ODI in Whangarei just days prior.

Beaton previously represented West Indies Under-19s, West Indies A and was also called up for the Afghanistan Twenty20s earlier this year.

Sir Viv said with the player having gone through so many of the different stages of West Indies cricket, the onus was on coaches to identify these types of flaws.

“He [Windies bowling coach Roderick Estwick] is supposed to have the know-how as to how to get these guys and correct them, and these guys [players] would have been through that particular department for quite some time to try and rectify all that,” Sir Viv told the Observer. (CMC)
