Kaushal's offbreak legal, doosra not so
Sri Lanka offspinner Tharindu Kaushal has been banned from bowling the doosra in international cricket due to an illegal action.
However his stock delivery, the offbreak, has been found to be legal in tests conducted by the ICC on his bowling action at the Sri Ramachandra University in Chennai.
The tests showed that while Kaushal's elbow extension was found to be "well within the 15-degree level of tolerance" for all his offbreaks, half of his doosras exceeded that limit.
