The West Indies Cricket Board denied reports that Dwight Washington, the 21-year-old Jamaican fast bowler, had been reported to the International Cricket Council for having a suspect bowling action and, as a result, left out of the West Indies squad.
The WICB's Bowling Review Committee insisted that they had no concerns about Washington's action, and the ICC's Brendan McClements also confirmed that he had not been reported.
The rumours appear to have started when Roger Braithwaite, the WICB's chief executive officer, confirmed that Washington's action was highlighted by domestic umpires who asked the board to take a look.
"There have been reports from umpires on Washington and other players and one young player was reviewed without a report having been submitted," he was quoted as saying on caribbeancricket.com. "The committee looked at videotapes of Washington's bowling this weekend and found no cause for concern."
Gus Logie, the West Indies coach, confirmed that the matter had nothing to do with Washington's omission from the squad for the Sabina Park Test.
