The International Cricket Council (ICC) has cleared Zimbabwe speedster Brian Vitori to resume bowling after his action was found to be legal in an official re-assessment.

In January, Vitori was reported during the third Twenty20 International against Bangladesh and was subsequently suspended from bowling in February after an independent assessment deemed his action to be illegal.

Following the remedial work, Vitori underwent a re-assessment of his bowling action on 10th June at the University of Pretoria where all his deliveries were found to be legal.

In a media release, ICC confirmed the news and further added that the umpires can report Vitori again, if they suspect an illegal action.

"The International Cricket Council (ICC) today 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," the release confirmed.

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

Since making his debut for Zimbabwe in 2011, Vitori has played four Tests, 19 One-Day Internationals, and 11 T20Is with a combined haul of 42 wickets.
