The Jamaica Scorpions were rocked by some disappointing news on Monday as off spinners captain John Campbell and Peat Salmon have been suspended from bowling in domestic West Indies matches with immediate effect.

The bowling actions of both players have been found to be illegal according to the opinion of independent assessors at Loughborough University.

The assessments revealed that the bowling of Campbell and Salmon exceeded the 15 degrees level of tolerance permitted under playing regulations.

They will both remain suspended until such time as their actions are sorted out.

Campbell was reported during the season opener against Trinidad and Tobago Red Force in which he took 1 for 54 while Salmon was reported during the fourth round encounter against champions the Guyana Jaguars in which he bagged match haul of 8 for 110

They are to undergo remedial work supervised by the scorpions franchise and can apply for a reassessment after modifying their bowling actions.

The Scorpions are currently lying third in the standings after five rounds with 57.4 points and will next face the Jaguars at the Trelawny Multi-purpose stadium from February 27 to march 1.
