Ntozakhe allowed to resume bowling in international cricket

ICC Logo

The International Cricket Council (ICC) today announced that following remedial work and re-assessment, the bowling action of South Africa off-spinner Raisibe Ntozakhe has been found to be legal, and she can resume bowling in international cricket.

Ntozakhe was suspended from bowling in international cricket after being reported during an ICC Women’s Championship ODI against the West Indies in Barbados on 16 September 2018.

Ntozakhe’s remodeled bowling action was assessed at University of Pretoria on 10 September, where it was revealed that the amount of elbow extension was within the 15-degree level of tolerance permitted under the ICC Illegal Bowling Regulations

Match Officials may still report Ntozakhe if they believe she is displaying a suspect action and not reproducing the legal action from the reassessment. To assist the Match Officials, they will be provided with the report, images and video footage of the bowler’s legal bowling action.

The media release on Ntozakhe’s suspension can be found here.
