Suspect Action of School Cricketers to be reported by officiating Umpires ranging from Under 13 to Under 19 Age Levels
Please be informed that the Cricket Committee, SLC at a recent meeting unanimously decided to inform the Umpires to call players bowling with suspect actions and report the matter to SLC when they participate in the SLSCA and SLC conducted tournaments.
This shall apply to all matches officiated by Umpires from the Under 13 to U19 age groups in a bid to ensure that talented cricketers can be rectified with such actions before it is too late.
We request you to inform all your coaches assigned to School Teams of the decision taken in the greater interest of Sri Lanka cricket.
SLC will take appropriate action by passing the reports to the SLC Coaching Department for remedial measures to be taken on the concerned player/s.
At this juncture we will not implement the policy adopted by ICC, but attach herewith a PDF copy of the ICC document ( Click Here) clearly mentioning the process involved when a player has been reported with suspect actions.
