Kenyan reported for 'throwing'
After the radio link controversy, security problems and crowd behaviour, the last thing the organisers wanted was the issue of "chucking" to reenter the public debate just as the World Cup was beginning to gain momentum.
The organisers may like it or not but the issue had cropped up and that too from a team which has little or no stake in the competition. Kenya's fast bowler Jimmy Kamande has been reported for "throwing" during the match against Zimbabwe.
England and Wales Cricket Board spokesman said here today that reports by umpires Doug Cowie (New Zealand) and Javed Akhtar (Paksitan) has been referred to the International Cricket Council (ICC). No representative of either side was ready to comment on the report.
It is said that 20-year-old Kamande was cautioned after bowling a short ball at Paul Strang and the matter was later brought to the attention of match referee John Reid.
