Mumbai: India under-19 off-spinner Mohnish Bipinbhai Parmar's action, found to be unsatisfactory during the ICC Under-19 World Cup in Sri Lanka, is likely to be investigated by the BCCI's Bowling Review Group and Advisors comprising Ravi Shastri, Javagal Srinath and Laxman Sivaramakrishnan.

The BCCI constituted a three-member committee recently following instructions from the ICC that all cricket boards must put in place a special committee comprising a fast bowler, an off-spinner and a leg-break bowler to review bowling actions.

The ICC's three-member committee in Messrs. Richard Done, Javagal Srinath and Dr. Marc Portus have reported to the BCCI that Parmar's action needs to be examined systematically.

The BCCI secretary Niranjan Shah said on Saturday that the ICC panel have pointed out that the bowling action of Parmar raised some concerns among match officials (umpires) during the under-19 World Cup and immediately they brought it to their notice.

"But when the panel was in attendance, Parmar was either not selected or injured and in the absence of footage of his bowling the ICC panel could not reach a definitive conclusion. The panel has suggested to the BCCI that it should investigate his action in line with the current ICC policy,'' said Mr. Shah.

Mr. Shah said the BCCI would investigate Parmar's action and take corrective measures if necessary.

"We have asked Shivlal Yadav, Director of NCA, to assist Parmar so that he can play the next year's first class competitions,'' he said.

Two years ago Ashok Mankad, the Chairman of the BCCI's Talent Resource Development Organisation (TRDO-West Zone), had recommended to the BCCI that Parmar be selected for training camps.
