Ronsford Beaton suspended by ICC
ST JOHN’S – Cricket West Indies wishes to acknowledge a report from the International Cricket Council (ICC) regarding the suspension of fast bowler, Ronsford Beaton.
The ICC is reporting that Beaton has failed an independent assessment and will not be permitted to bowl in international cricket.
Beaton will, therefore, join the fast bowling camp, now on in Antigua as part of his remedial programme. Following this, he will undergo a reassessment process and if it is successful, he will be allowed to participate at the international level.
Director of cricket, Jimmy Adams says “we are fully committed to working with Ronsford during this period of remedial work which will hopefully accelerate his successful re-admission to the professional game.”
Beaton was reported for suspect action during the second ODI against New Zealand last December.
The ICC noted that the international suspension will also be recognised and enforced by all national cricket federations for domestic cricket events played in their own jurisdictions.
However, with the consent of CWI, Beaton may be able to play in domestic events in the Caribbean. (PR)
