West Indies vice-captain Kraigg Brathwaite has been cleared for the second time of his bowling action by independent assessors.
Brathwaite, 26, who bowls off-spin, had been reported for a suspected illegal bowling action during the second Test against India last month in Jamaica.
But the International Cricket Council (ICC), the sport’s world governing body, confirmed last week that his bowling action “has been found to be legal, and the player can continue bowling in international cricket.”
Brathwaite underwent a bowling assessment on Sept. 14 in the English city of Loughborough, it was revealed that the amount of elbows extension for all his deliveries was within the 15-degree level of tolerance permitted.
Braithwaite has taken 18 wickets in 58 Tests with is part-time off-spin, including a remarkable spell of 6 for 29 against Sri Lanka in Colombo in 2015.
Two years later, his action was reported after the first Test against England at Edgbaston, but another less than two weeks found his action to be legitimate.
