Cricket South Africa has placed two 19-year-old bowlers - Prenelan Subrayen and Solo Nqweni - under rehabilitation after independent tests carried out by the Australian Institute of Sport and the Sports Science Institute of South Africa deemed their actions illegal. The two bowlers will not be permitted to take part in first-class cricket till the rehabilitation is complete.
"There is a standard protocol we have for dealing with matters of this nature," Corrie van Zyl, CSA general manager cricket, said. "In the case of Prenelan the situation has been complicated by the fact that he suffered a bad dislocation of his bowling shoulder several years ago and this has contributed to the current problem. He thus needs to undergo both shoulder rehabilitation as well as rehabilitation of his bowling action.
Van Zyl said the two players will be under the charge of their respective provincial teams - KwaZulu-Natal for Subrayen and Eastern Province for Nqweni - with assistance from the CSA who will make the facilties and the personnel at the High Performance centre available.
"We have every confidence that the rehab process will be successful and that these two talented young cricketers will be able to continue their promising careers in the near future," he said.
Subrayen, a right-arm offspinner, has taken six wickets in three first-class matches this season while right-arm seamer Nqweni has 33 wickets from eight matches.
