West Indies’ Kraigg Brathwaite has been cleared to bowl in international cricket by the ICC after it found his bowling action legal.

Opening batsman Brathwaite, who bowls off-spin, had been reported for a suspected illegal bowling action during the second Test against India in Kingston, which ended on September 2.

He subsequently underwent a bowling assessment test in Loughborough, United Kingdom on September 14, where it was revealed that the amount of elbow flexion for all his deliveries was within the 15-degree level of tolerance permitted under the ICC Illegal Bowling Regulations.
