Sydney Thunder spinner Arjun Nair was banned from bowling in domestic cricket following a breach of protocol that took place during a test conducted on him after his action was reported by match officials during the game Big Bash League game against Hobart Hurricanes on December 30.
The Sydney Thunder spinner was reported following his franchise's match against Hobart Hurricanes in the ongoing Big Bash League on December 30 a year ago. Meanwhile, he has received the backing from his Sydney Thunder camp.
Speaking on the incident, Sydney Thunder General Manager Lee Germon, in an interview with cricket.com.au said, "Arjun is a talented and popular member of our club".
"We believe he will have a long and successful career with Sydney Thunder and shall support him through this process".
The offpsinner, who can turn the ball in both directions, will now only be permitted to resume bowling after his action is deemed to have been remedied. He has spoken previously of developing his method by watching footage of the West Indian Sunil Narine on YouTube and trying to follow suit. "Then I started watching a bit of YouTube, clips of guys bowling carrom balls and stuff. At first, I couldn't get many revs on the carrom ball, but over time and getting used to it, I've started to get more on it and my accuracy has improved", Nair added.
"I was 15 when I started bowling it, and I was bowling it in matches about four months after that".
"I was mainly a batsman who bowled part-time leggies".
