Kane Williamson cleared to resume bowling

December 9, 2014

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — The International Cricket Council says New Zealand allrounder Kane Williamson has been cleared to resume bowling off-spin after completing remedial work to correct an illegal action.

Sri Lanka’s Sachithra Senanayake has also been cleared after being reported for an illegal action during a one-day match against England in June.

Williamson has been suspended for five months during which he has remodeled his bowling action.

In a statement Tuesday, the ICC said “following remedial work and a re-test, the bowling actions of Sri Lanka’s Sachithra Senanayake and New Zealand’s Kane Williamson are legal and they can now resume bowling in international cricket.”
