Two SA bowlers set for rehab

2012-12-26 14:31

Johannesburg - Cricket SA (CSA) have placed two young bowlers under rehabilitation, it said in a statement on Wednesday.

"There is a standard protocol we have for dealing with matters of this nature," commented Corrie van Zyl, CSA general manager: Cricket.

Prenelan Subrayen of KwaZulu-Natal and Solomzi Nqweni of Eastern Province would not be permitted to bowl in first-class cricket during this time, as their actions have been deemed to be illegal following two independent tests.

"In the case of Prenelan, the situation has been complicated by the fact that he suffered a bad dislocation of his bowling shoulder several years ago and this has contributed to the current problem," Van Zyle said.

"He needs to undergo both shoulder rehabilitation as well as rehabilitation of his bowling action."

The players would receive intensive coaching on their bowling actions after which time they would be re-tested.

The tests on the two players were carried out by the Australian Institute of Sport and the Sports Science Institute of South Africa at the request of the International Cricket Council (ICC) after their actions came under scrutiny at the ICC under-19 World Cup in Australia in August.

"The two provinces will take charge of the rehab process of their players and CSA will make all its facilities available to assist the process," he said.

"We have every confidence that the rehab process will be successful and that these two talented young cricketers will be able to continue their promising careers in the near future."

    Please specify physical rehabilitation for injury sustained. Headline gives another impression.

      I agree! Journalists should be more responsible!

      their actions have been deemed to be illegal following two independent tests.

      Rehabilitate the journalists as their writing is suspicious...

      The headline would have been even more misleading if it stated that they are being withdrawn for physical injury rehab. They haven't been withdrawn for that, Nqweni isn't injured at all. They have been withdrawn because their action is deemed illegal.

      I guess the ambiguity got us to read the article = Win for journalism (from their point of view at least, irrigates the hell out of me).

      Shame...there can't be much to do in the Northern Cape. It's not Ramon's fault. I, too, would be sad and bitter.

    In nowadays our sport stars including their mangers are slowly becoming famous for all the wrong things!

      squeegee.pilot - 2012-12-27 08:09

      Hey sicko, did you read the article or just the headline..?

      sicelo.brukwe.9 - 2012-12-27 10:38

      Oh Shucks been caught offside again but this journalist must come into the books!

      squeegee.pilot - 2012-12-27 19:43

      Good recovery sicko....

    ramon.allen1,you are a very insulting person.Not nice...

  • christina.pretorius.9 - 2012-12-27 06:20

    The headline is disingenuous and suggests something entirely different to the content of the article - the cricketers involved are maligned and will most likely be offended by what the headline suggests.

      richard.barnes.3914 - 2012-12-27 11:17

      Would they feel happier with "Two bowlers suspended for illegal action"?

  • 1PeterG - 2012-12-27 12:54

    Bad reporting, use the words "bowling action" I first thought they had been on drugs or alcohol when I first read it!!

  • Kwanele Mzwanele Masoka - 2012-12-27 17:06

    Pardon me if I am wrong, but I think we must give credit to the reporters for drawing our attention to the story... Why did CSA take them to the tournament in the first place, aren't they suppose to monitor such things because to me,its so embarrasing.
