St John’s, Antigua – Off spinner Shane Shillingford has been cleared by the International Cricket Council to return to international cricket. The ICC formally notified the WICB of the clearance following a Biomechanical Bowling Analysis which was conducted at the University of Western Australia on May 25th last by a research team headed by Prof. Bruce Elliott.
Shillingford underwent five months of intense remedial work at the Sagicor High Performance Centre in Barbados and in his native Dominica.
GROS ISLET, St Lucia, CMC – New-look West Indies suffered more agony on Monday when they slumped to a seven-wicket loss to Pakistan in the second One-Day International, to fall behind 2-0 in the five match series.
