Former Test off-spinner Shane Shillingford has been suspended by Cricket West Indies for an illegal bowling action, ruling him out of the third round of the Regional Four-Day Championship which starts Friday.

Shillingford was apparently reported following Windward Islands Volcanoes’ first-round match against Guyana Jaguars in St Lucia.

Video footage was subsequently sent to England for analysis, confirming the suspicion of match officials.

It is understood that the two deliveries from Shillingford which came under the spotlight were the faster ball and the doosra.

CWI are yet to make a statement on the matter but Shillingford was not named in the Volcanoes 13-man squad to face Jamaica Scorpions at Sabina Park.
