Zimbabwe fast bowler Brian Vitori has been suspended from bowling in international cricket for 12 months, after his action for some deliveries was once again found to be illegal after an independent assessment at an ICC-accredited testing facility in South Africa on December 12.
He was suspended by the ICC because it was the second time in the space of two years that his action was deemed illegal. Vitori had been suspended from bowling for an illegal action in February 2016 but was cleared by the ICC to resume bowling in June this year after undergoing remedial work. He can appeal against “any procedural aspect” of the latest test that led to his suspension, but he can approach the ICC for another assessment of his action only after 12 months.
