LONDON - West Indies' Marlon Samuels has been cleared to bowl again after serving a 12-month ban for an illegal bowling action, the International Cricket Council (ICC) has said.
Batsman Samuels, who only bowls part-time off-spin for West Indies, received the ban in December 2015 after picking up two suspensions in two years for the same offence.
"Following remedial work and reassessment, the bowling action of West Indies Marlon Samuels has been found to be legal, and the player can now resume bowling in international cricket," the ICC said in a statement.
"The umpires are still at liberty to report Samuels if they believe he is displaying a suspect action and not reproducing the legal action from the reassessment."
Samuels underwent testing on Jan. 29 at Loughborough University in Britain. His elbow extension in his remodelled action was within the allowed 15 degrees.
The 36-year-old's ban stemmed from testing in Brisbane after he was reported during the first test defeat against Sri Lanka in October 2015.
Samuels served a near four-year bowling ban from 2008 due to concerns about his action but was allowed to resume in 2011 after remedial work.
He was reported again following a test in India in 2013 and subsequently banned from bowling his quicker deliveries but had been allowed to continue with his standard off-break.
Samuels must undergo further analysis if he is reported again. -Reuters
