Christchurch: For the first time in the history of the women's game, umpires have raised concern over the legality of bowling actions. The umpires standing at the 2000 women's World Cup have reported to the Technical Committee that the bowling actions of three players are feared to be suspect.The three players listed for suspect bowling action are seam bowlers Renu Margrate of India and Caroline salmons of The Netherlands; and spin bowler Erin McDonald of New Zealand, according to an official press release from New Zealand Cricket.Australian Simon Taufel and New Zealand's Brent Bowden two international umpires, who stood in India's match against England on Monday have reported to the Technical Committee about Margrate's suspect action, while McDonald and Salomons were reported by New Zealand international umpire Steve Dunne and his colleague Peter Williams following the match between the two teams on Wednesday. The Technical Committee will, however, allow the players to take further part in the tournament but have advised the respective Boards to undertake remedial measures recommending the players concerned to undergo video analysis of their action to ensure the action is lawful.The umpires have advised that, in their view, the bowlers may contravene Law 24.3 of the 2000 Code of Cricket Law and have recommended further investigation by the respective team management. Tournament Director, Tim Murdoch, said the umpires' reports had been received by the World Cup Technical Committee and the three teams involved had been informed this morning. "The umpires have not called' the bowlers for a no-ball during the match because they are not certain the action is illegal but clearly believe there is a case to answer and have rightly recommended further investigation. "It is possible that other players may also be implicated in following games, but the issue is entirely at the jurisdiction of the umpires."
