Gloucestershire spinner Jack Taylor and Hampshire seamer Glenn Querl have been suspended from bowling by the England and Wales Cricket Board due to 'suspected illegal actions'.

The ECB says that the pair were reported twice in the last year and that they have now had their actions independently analysed.

An ECB statement read: "In both cases no previous evidence was available and hence their bowling actions were subject to the independent analysis process set out in the ECB regulations for the review of bowlers reported with suspected illegal bowling actions.

"This analysis took place on Monday 20th May 2013.

Excessive elbow extension

"The reports identified that the bowling actions of each player displayed elbow extension in excess of the permitted 15 degrees during analysis.

"Consequently, and in accordance with the regulations, both Querl and Taylor are suspended from bowling for England and in competitive county cricket, until such time as they have submitted to a fresh independent analysis in which it is concluded that they have remedied their actions. The suspension is with immediate effect."

Taylor has only taken six wickets in four LV= County Championship Division Two apearances this season but is fourth in the Gloucestershire batting averages, having scored 178 runs at 44.50.

Zimbabwe-born Querl has been playing second XI cricket for Hampshire but he has represented the Unicorns in three Yorkshire Bank 40 games, taking just the one wicket.
