Parmar figures in ICC's flawed 12, BCCI to investigate
New Delhi, Apr 15 (UNI) The BCCI will investigate off-break bowler Mohnish Parmar's bowling action, who was among the 12 bolwers reported for having a ''potentially flawed'' action at the ICC U-19 World Cup in Sri Lanka.
In a statement issued today board Secretary Niranjan Shah said, ''The BCCI has taken note of the observations made by the panel appointed by ICC management for the under-19 World Cup comprising Richard Done, Javagal Srinath and Dr Marc Portus regarding the bowling action of the Mohnish Parmar.'' ''The panel has observed that the bowling action of Mohnish Parmar has raised some concerns at the event and was reported to the panel by the match officials when they arrived in Sri lanka. The Board will investigate the action, as suggested by the panel, and where ever necessary take corrective measures,'' he added.
However, the BCCI secretary said, since Parmar was either not selected or injured in the matches seen by the panel they could not reach a definitive conclusion.
Meanwhile, Parmar is currently under-going a trainee's camp at the Zonal Academy (West Zone) which begins today and ends on May 24.
The 17-year-old Gujarat player's action would be analysed by an off-spinner to identify the problem, if any, and suggest rectification with the help of video-analysis.
National Cricket Academy (NCA) Director Shiv Lal Yadav would oversee the process and help him to overcome the problem.
