Why pick a bowler with a suspect action?

Makarand Waingankar asks in his column in 'THE HINDU'.


It is common knowledge that the Gujarat off-spinner Mohnish Parmar's action is suspect. BCCI's Director of Umpires S.Venkatraghavan and his colleagues have deemed his action is faulty after analyzing his action on video tapes for a mammoth 10 hours.


Yet he has represented India on the tour to Israel and played in the team against Australia A at Bangalore.


Makarand argues it better for all concerned that the bowler undergoes corrective rehabilitation.


I find Makarand's argument valid as it will certainly mar Mohnish Parmar's psyche if he is banned.


Do you agree with me?

wasnt he part of the 20 odd bowlers whose actions were suspect and who had to undergo corrective training at the NCA?

Yes he is in the list. However, the article in the Hindu says he has not undergone any corrective training.
