Jack Taylor is one of the versatile Gloucestershire off-spinner who is well known for his amazing scores during the game action for his team. His name has been on every Gloucestershire fan’s lips after a remarkable performance of the unbeaten hundred score that was able to see his team earn that championship over the Worcestershire at New Road. This has seen him be one of the vital team players for his team and making him very reliable during the crucial matches that his team plays against the better team. After that tantalizing performance, Jack Taylor was later banned from the county cricket action after he failed the independent test.
During the independent test that Jack Taylor underwent the test results showed that he has a bowling action that exceeded the allowed 15 degrees of elbow extension. That made him get an immediate suspension from the bowling activity in his county. This is because he had violated the ECB rules and regulations. A re-test was then allowed and if he failed the re-test again by the elbow extension not falling within the limits then the ban will not be lifted. This is not the first time that Jack Taylor faces the ECB, he faced the body after he was reported of this action again in 2013.
This Bowling ban comes when Jack Taylor is having a successful career after having recorded a maximum of 53 wickets in 39.39 first class cricket. Jack Taylor has also had a flourishing career at Gloucestershire after playing a vital role in leading his team in winning the Royal London Cup. During this cup, Jack Taylor recorded an incredible score of 35 points from 26 balls. During the cup, he also took 3 points for the 43 points during the final game against Surrey. This enabled him to pick on the man of the match during the cup. This is one of his remarkable and best performance in the Cricket world.
Jack Taylor’s performance in this season was also superb before receiving that ban. Taylor was able to play all of his championship matches without even missing a single match. During this season career, he was able to record a fabulous career by taking 14 wickets for his team and recording an average of 52.40 with the bat. During this season, he was also able to feature at the NatWest T20 Blast game where he played to date. The Jack Taylors bowling ban will have a negative impact on the performance of the Gloucestershire team since he has always been the main bone of contention during the matches that the Gloucestershire team has played during this season. At the moment, the ban was placed with an immediate effect until he passes the re-test that is when the ban will be lifted. Jack Taylor’s fate now lies on the retest that he is going to perform again, in case the retest fails then the ban can’t be lifted anymore.
