West Indies fast bowler Ronsford Beaton has been cleared by the International Cricket Council (ICC) to resume bowling in international cricket.
The 25-year-old played two One-Day Internationals against New Zealand last December but was reported by match officials for a suspect action following the second ODI in Christ Church.
He was subsequently banned last May after failing an independent assessment.
However, Beaton underwent remedial work on his action and the International Cricket Council said it now conformed to the “15-degree level of tolerance” under the regulations.
“Beaton’s remodeling bowling action was assessed at Loughborough University in England on Aug. 13, where it was revealed that the amount of elbow extension for all his deliveries within the 15-degree level of tolerance permitted under the ICC legal Bowling Regulations,” the ICC said.
