Zimbabwe’s left- arm fast bowler Brian Vitori has been reported with a suspect bowling action during the third Twenty20 International against Bangladesh that the Chevrons won by 31 runs in Khulna on Wednesday.
The match officials’ report, which was handed over to the Zimbabwe team management after the match, cited concerns about the legality of the 25-year-old’s deliveries.
Vitori’s bowling action will now be scrutinised further under the ICC process relating to suspected illegal bowling actions reported in Tests, ODIs and T20Is. He is required to undergo testing within 14 days, and, during this period, Vitori is permitted to continue bowling in international cricket until the results of the testing are known.
Vitori becomes the third Zimbabwean bowler to be called for suspect bowling actions after Prosper Utseya and Malcolm Waller also endured the challenge.
They were however both cleared after remedial work and re-tests on their bowling actions.—ICC/Sports Reporter.
