Brathwaite bowled two overs of his off-spin in the match in the first innings and even managed to pick up the wicket of Ishant Sharma.
Brathwaite had earlier been reported for a suspect bowling action in August 2017 but was cleared following an independent assessment.https://t.co/eqCW9QGO7J— ICC (@ICC) September 8, 2019
The 26-year-old has been given until September 14 to submit himself to a bowling action test but he will be allowed to continue bowling at the international till the results of the tests are known.
This is the second time that Brathwaite has been pulled up for a suspect action with the first instance coming in 2017 during Windies’ tour of England. On that occasion, the West Indies opener was ultimately cleared to bowl again a month following an independent assessment.
Brathwaite and West Indies’ next international appearance will not become before December this year when the side tour India. They are slated to take on both Afghanistan and India in their extensive tour which will see them also take on the former in a one-off Test.
