Namibia's Davidson suspended from bowling

ESPNcricinfo staff

Namibia fast bowler Jason Davidson has been suspended from bowling in international cricket after an event panel ruled his bowling action to be illegal. Davidson was reported after Namibia's four-wicket defeat against Netherlands on Tuesday; he picked up 1 for 13 from his two overs including the key wicket of Stephan Myburgh.

According to Section 4 of the ICC Regulations for the Review of Bowlers Reported with Suspected Illegal Actions, Davidson cannot bowl in any international cricket until he submits himself to an independent assessment of his action conducted by an appointed specialist at an ICC accredited testing center, which concludes that he has remedied his action.

As a result of the suspension, Davidson will not be allowed to bowl during Namibia's crucial clash against Oman on Thursday, with the winner of the match guaranteed a spot in next year's World Twenty20 in India.
