Essequibo, Guyana and West Indies pacer Ronsford Beaton departed Trinidad last Evening on Liat flight after he was sent home due to an illegal bowling action.
He will be replaced by former West Indies U-19 all-rounder 21-year-old Renaldo Ali-Mohammed for the Jaguars two remaining matches in the preliminary rounds of the ongoing Regional Super50 cricket tournament.
Ali Mohamed, who plays for GCC in local cricket, along with Chris Barnwell, was a replacement player in last year’s Super50 but did to not play any match and will be hoping to make his National Senior debut this year.
Beaton, who has played two ODI’s, has had problems with his bowling action during his career and was again reported during the game against United States last Monday but was allowed to play the next three games.
Beaton was suspended from bowling after being reported during an ODI against New Zealand in December 2017.
He was cleared to return to playing international cricket in August 2018, after his remodelled bowling action was assessed at Loughborough University in England on August 13, 2018, where it was revealed that the amount of elbow extension for all his deliveries was within the 15-degree level of tolerance permitted under the ICC Illegal Bowling Regulations.
The Jaguars are third on 16 points from six matches behind Red Force and West Indies Emerging players who are also both on 16 but have a superior net run rate.
The Jaguars play Red Force on Saturday and USA on Monday and the top two teams from Zone B will join the two teams from the St Kitts Zone.
If Jaguars qualify for the semis and finals, they will then play four games.
The 27-year-old Beaton will undergo an evaluation of his action which CWI has arranged for an independent assessment of the bowling action to be done.
“Video footage from the game was sent to Loughborough University in the United Kingdom for an opinion report in accordance with the CWI Regulations for Dealing with Suspected Illegal Bowling Actions.”
Beaton, who was born in the Volcano hit Island of Montserrat, has played 33 First-Class, 38 List A and 48 T20 matches.
