The International Cricket Council (ICC) today confirmed that the bowling action of Zimbabwe’s Malcolm Waller has been found to be legal, and the player can now resume bowling in international cricket.
 
Waller underwent a re-assessment of his bowling action, following remedial work at the University of Pretoria earlier this month, with such assessment concluding that the amount of elbow extension in Waller’s off-spin deliveries was within the 15-degree level of tolerance permitted under the ICC Regulations for the Review of Bowlers Reported with Suspected Illegal Bowling Actions
 
The umpires are still at liberty to report Waller in the future if they believe he is displaying a suspect action or that he is not reproducing the action that has been declared legal during this assessment.  To assist the umpires in this respect, they have been provided with images and video footage of the bowler’s legal bowling action.
 
The 30-year-old was initially reported after the second Test against Bangladesh in Khulna in November 2014 and, following an Independent Assessment carried out in December, was found to bowl with an Illegal Bowling Action in respect of his off-spin deliveries.
