Vitori’s action cleared, free to resume bowling

The International Cricket Council (ICC) confirmed that Zimbabwe fast bowler Brian Vitori's bowling action has been found to be legal following remedial work.

The re-test revealed that Vitori's elbow was within the 15-degree limit for all his deliveries and he is now free to resume bowling in international cricket and at domestic tournaments worldwide.

All the remedial work and re-tests were done at the University of Pretoria in South Africa on June 10.

The 26-year-old was reported after a T20I against Bangladesh in Khulna in January and was subsequently suspended in February.

A left-arm paceman, Vitori has played four Tests, 19 ODIs and 11 T20Is for Zimbabwe since making his international debut in August 2011.
