Shane Shillingford is cleared by the International Cricket Council to resume bowling for the West Indies.

Shane Shillingford has been cleared to resume bowling in international cricket following a period of testing.

The West Indies spinner was reported to the International Cricket Council in November due to concerns over a suspected illegal bowling action.

After his arm was found to be extending further than the permitted 15 degrees for his off-breaks and doosras, the 31-year-old was suspended by the ICC.

However, his off-breaks and arm balls have now been deemed legal, but his doosra delivery remains banned.

Shillingford has taken 65 wickets in 14 Tests for the West Indies.
