While people couldn’t stop laughing seeing the cricketer bowl, there are many who feel that the cricketer’s bowling style is unacceptable and IPL should take action against it.

Here’s what ICC says about an illegal bowling action:
“An Illegal Bowling Action is where a player is throwing rather than bowling the ball. This is defined by the ICC as being where the player’s elbow extends by an amount of more than 15 degrees between their arm reaching the horizontal and the ball being released. Match Officials in international cricket use the naked eye and their cricketing experience to decide whether they believe a player may be using an Illegal Bowling Action and, if so, they will submit a report.”
