ICC gives Zimbabwe bowler, Vitori  the  green light to play

THE  International Cricket Council (ICC) on (today)  Friday confirmed that following remedial work and a retest, the bowling action of Zimbabwe’s Brian Vitori has been found to be legal, and the left-arm fast bowler can now resume bowling in both international cricket and domestic cricket events worldwide.

At the retest, it was revealed that the amount of elbow extensions in Vitori’s bowling action for all his deliveries that were tested was within the 15-degree level of tolerance permitted under the ICC regulations for the review of bowlers reported with suspected illegal bowling actions.

The umpires are free to report Vitori in the future if they believe he uses a suspect action.

The retest was performed at the University of Pretoria on June 10.

Vetori was reported after the third T20 against Bangladesh in Khulna on January 20 and subsequently banned. – ANA
