GCA test case

Geelong Advertiser - - SPORT -

Un­der the laws of cricket, any of­fi­cial men­tion of a sus­pect ac­tion will trig­ger a long and drawn-out process.

Af­ter three writ­ten men­tions, a bowler with an al­leged il­le­gal ac­tion is or­dered to un­der­take re­me­di­a­tion.

A fourth men­tion trig­gers an­other eight-week lay-off, while a fifth re­port draws a 12month sus­pen­sion.

A shell-shocked Wil­liams said while he was still con­sum­ing the news, the club would be guided by the GCA.

“I think that’s part of the process. What­ever the rules are, we will fol­low them,” he said. “Any­thing that the league sug­gests, we’ll do. Al­ways.”

Asked how the 21-year-old was cop­ing with the at­ten­tion, Wil­liams replied: “He’s OK.”
