The International Cricket Council is a step closer to introducing biomechanical testing for bowlers with suspect delivery actions in match conditions.

The ICC and the Maryleborne Cricket Club, the traditional custodian of the game, are working with an Australian scientific consortium to develop technology which can be worn during matches by bowlers who have been reported for suspect bowling actions.

Biochemist Marc Portus, who is leading the project, told Australian media the technology - similar to that used in IPads and car crash impact detection systems - could be ready for use in first-class matches within two years.
