GCA test case
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.”
