After being cited on three occasions last year, Cameron Gannon’s bowling action has finally been given the green light.
The promising 24 year old quick had come under the microscope all season, but recent tests have confirmed he will be available when the new season gets under way.
His debut in 2010 lasted 31 overs. However, this was a four day game, and not a t20. The wash-out ruined what would have been a special moment in his career, but the paceman didn’t have to wait too long for a reason to celebrate.
With 31 wickets at just 23.51 last summer, Gannon was one of the form bowlers in the Sheffield Shield.
Standing at almost 200 cm tall, Gannon collected career best figures of 6/53, before destroying the Blues in Canberra.
After taking four wickets in the Shield match, Gannon claimed a maiden five-for to bowl his side to a 30 run victory.
A four wicket haul against the Warriors continued his dream run, but lean returns in three successive matches against Victoria suggested he had hit the proverbial wall.
A couple of wickets in each innings against the Tigers sealed his spot when the two sides met again in the final two weeks later.
Although the Bulls fell short of victory, the youngster managed three wickets in his first Shield final.
With 64 wickets in both forms of the game, as well as finals experience in 50 over and four day cricket, Gannon is now a key member of arguably the hottest attack in the competition.
