ECB today announced that Gloucestershire’s Jack Taylor has been suspended from bowling following a Bowling Review Group hearing.
The off-spinner’s suspension follows a process set out in the ECB’s Regulations for the Review of Bowlers Reported with a Suspected Illegal Bowling Action.
He has been reported on two separate occasions by different umpires within a year and has undergone independent analysis at Loughborough University.
The hearing took place last Friday and upheld the findings of the independent analysis, which showed an action in excess of the allowed limits.
He was previously suspended under these regulations from June to August 2016. As this was his second suspension within a two-year period (from the start of the first suspension) he is suspended from bowling in Competitive Cricket for a minimum period of 12 months.
This suspension takes effect from the receipt of the independent assessment on 26 September 2017. After this date, the player may request a re-assessment of his action by independent analysis.
