Cooper reported for suspect action
Kevon Cooper, the Lahore Qalandars all-rounder, has been reported for bowling with a suspect action, a Pakistan Super League (PSL) media release read on Wednesday (February 17).
Cooper was reported by match officials after Lahore's clash against Quetta Gladiators at the Dubai International Stadium on Tuesday.
The West Indian is now placed on the warning list and may continue to to be selected to play and bowl for his team, but will be barred from bowling if umpires spot another infringement.
Under the PSL suspected illegal bowling action policy, if a player is reported while on the warning list, the player shall be suspended from bowling for the remainder of the tournament and from bowling in any matches organized by the PCB until he is cleared or upon conclusion of any ineligibility period.
This is the third time that Cooper's action has come under the scanner. He was pulled up by the on-field umpires during IPL 2014 and once more in 2011 during the Caribbean T20 league after which he had to undergo a remedial program in Perth.
In six matches this season, Cooper has taken six wickets at an average of 26.16 and economy of 9.23, that includes a 3 for 25 against Peshawar Zalmi that gave Lahore one of only two wins in the season so far.
