Queensland paceman Cameron Gannon has been suspended from bowling in interstate cricket because of a suspect action, with biomechanical analysis revealing he bowls with an elbow extension outside the allowable level.

Analysis conducted at the Australian Institute of Sport found that Gannon bowls with an illegal action for all deliveries, with an average elbow extension of 24 degrees, above the allowable elbow extension of 15 degrees.

“As such Gannon is now suspended from bowling in interstate cricket until he passes another analysis of his action in accordance with the provisions set out in the Cricket Australia Doubtful Bowling procedure,” said CA in a statement Friday.

The suspension is effective immediately and Gannon is not able to request a fresh analysis of his action until at least 90 days.

Gannon enjoyed a breakthrough season with 31 Sheffield Shield wickets at 23 and nine Ryobi Cup wickets at 25. He was reported by umpires four times this season, including twice in the Shield final.
