Gloucestershire spinner Jack Taylor and Hampshire seamer Glenn Querl have been suspended from bowling by the England and Wales Cricket Board after being reported for suspect actions.

The pair were referred for independent analysis after being reported twice in the last year.

An ECB statement read: “In both cases no previous evidence was available and hence their bowling actions were subject to the independent analysis process set out in the ECB regulations for the review of bowlers reported with suspected illegal bowling actions.

“This analysis took place on Monday 20th May 2013. The report of the independent analysis was received by ECB on Tuesday 28th May 2013. The reports identified that the bowling actions of each player displayed elbow extension in excess of the permitted 15 degrees during analysis. This analysis follows the same procedures used by (the International Cricket Council) in such circumstances.

“Both Querl and Taylor are suspended from bowling for England and in competitive county cricket until such time as they have submitted to a fresh independent analysis in which it is concluded that they have remedied their actions.”
