West Indies off-spinner Shane Shillingford has been cleared to resume his international career after undergoing five months of intensive work on his bowling action.
Shillingford’s action was reported to the International Cricket Council last November following the Windies’ Test with Sri Lanka in Galle.
He subsequently underwent lengthy remedial work in Barbados and Dominica before a biomechanical bowling analysis on May 25 at the University of Western Australia confirmed his action had been modified successfully.
“I am extremely happy that I have been cleared to continue playing international cricket. It has been what I always wanted to do and having to overcome this hurdle has made me stronger and more determined to succeed,” Shillingford said.
“I put in a lot of hard work over the past few months and I must thank the West Indies Cricket Board for the support and particularly the Sagicor High Performance Centre (HPC) where the majority of the work was done.”
