USA’s Kyle Phillip Gets Call For Illegal Bowling Action

United States player Kyle Phillip has been suspended from bowling in international cricket with immediate effect after the ICC’s Event Panel confirmed that the fast bowler used an illegal bowling action.

The match officials reported the 26-year-old following his side’s ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Qualifier match against West Indies on Sunday, 18 June 2023.

The former Trinidadian took 3-56 in the USA’s 39-run loss.

The Event Panel reviewed match footage of Phillip’s bowling action. It concluded that he employs an illegal bowling action and, as such, by Article 6.7 of the regulations, he is immediately suspended from bowling in international cricket.

The suspension will remain in place until he submits to a reassessment of his bowling action, which concludes his bowling action is legal.

USA have lost their first three matches at the Cricket World Cup Qualifier event, with their five-wicket loss to the Netherlands in Harare on Thursday leaving them at the bottom of Group A ahead of their final group match against Zimbabwe on Monday.
