Gannon's suspension lifted

UPDATED 14 August, 2013 10:32AM AEST | by Cricket Australia

Cricket Australia today announced that Queensland bowler Cameron Gannon’s suspension from bowling in interstate cricket has been lifted after biomechanical analysis of his bowling action.

Gannon was reported for a suspected illegal bowling action during the 2012-13 Bupa Sheffield Shield final and was tested under the Cricket Australia Doubtful Bowling Action Procedures. Results found that not all of his deliveries were legal, and on 12 April he was suspended for a minimum period of 90 days.

Gannon worked with Queensland Cricket and Centre of Excellence staff to modify his action and applied to have his action reassessed once this 90-day period passed. This testing was conducted at the Australian Institute of Sport biomechanics facility in Canberra on 30 July.

The results of this testing indicated that Gannon’s bowling action complied with the CA tolerance level, which is an elbow extension of 15 degrees or less for every delivery.

As a result, Gannon’s suspension has been lifted.
