Zimbabwe pacer Vitori reported for suspect action

Bulawayo (Zimbabwe), Nov 30 (IANS) Zimbabwe cricketer Brian Vitori will need to get his bowling action tested within a fortnight after being reported for a suspected illegal bowling action during the final of the tri-series against Sri Lanka here.

The 26-year-old pacer, who was banned from bowling earlier in January but allowed in June after he amended his action, can however continue bowling in international cricket until the results of the tests are out, according to a statement from International Cricket Council (ICC).

The match officials’ report, which was handed over to the Zimbabwe management, cited concerns about the legality of the seamer’s bowling action during Sunday’s final.
