Dhaka: Mar 26, 2014

West IndiesShane Shillingford was on Wednesday allowed by the International Cricket Council (ICC) to resume bowling in internationals after undergoing remedial work but the off-spinner has been barred from bowling his ‘doosra’ delivery.

Shillingford was reported at the end of second day’s play in the Mumbai Test against India in November 2013 and was tested on November 29 at the University of Western Australia (UWA).

All his delivery types were assessed as illegal and he was suspended from bowling in international cricket, and subsequently underwent remedial work to modify his action.

ICC said that Shillingford’s off-break and arm-balls were re-tested at the UWA in Perth on March 4 and the elbow extension measured for each of his 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.

“Shillingford has confirmed that he will no longer bowl the Doosra. Therefore, his Doosra will remain an illegal delivery and he cannot bowl it in international cricket,” an ICC release said.

Shillingford’s bowling action will continue to be scrutinised by match officials to ensure it remains legal, according to ICC.
