Chris Green suspended from bowling after action found illegal

Chris Green, Sydney Thunder’s offspinner, was suspended due to illegal bowling action on Wednesday (January 8). As a result, he was withdrawn from Thunder’s squad for the Big Bash League game tonight.

Green was reported by umpires on-field umpires Nathan Johnstone, Mike Graham-Smith and third umpire Paul Wilson after the match between Thunder and Melbourne Stars on January 2. He then underwent testing at the National Cricket Centre on January 5 as per protocol. The results from the test showed Green to have an illegal bowling action.

Green, who was picked up by the Kolkata Knight Riders at the IPL auctions, will not be able to bowl for a minimum period of 90 days in any Cricket Australia-run competitions with immediate effect, after which he will be eligible to retake the test and attempt to return to bowling. However, should Thunder or New South Wales opt to play him solely as a batsman, it will be permitted. He can bowl in premier cricket though, under the supervision, and with the consent of Cricket NSW during his suspension.
