The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Wednesday has cleared West Indies off-spinner Kraigg Brathwaite of a suspected illegal bowling action.

The 24-year-old was reported by on-field officials Marais Erasmus and S Ravi , third umpire Chris Gaffaney and match referee David Boon during the first Test against England at Edgbaston last month following which he underwent a test at the Loughborough testing centre in England on 31st August.

A statement released by the governing body confirmed that all of Brathwaite's deliveries were found within the permissible 15 degrees.

"The bowling action of Windies off-spinner Kraigg Brathwaite has been found to be legal, and the player can continue bowling in international cricket," the ICC said in a statement.

Brathwaite has 12 wickets from 40 Tests and has a career-best figure of 29 for six that came against Sri Lanka in Colombo in 2015.
