Zimbabwe’s Roy Kaia suspended from bowling in international cricket

ICC's expert panel concluded that the off-spinner’s deliveries exceeded the 15 degrees level of tolerance permitted under the regulations

The International Cricket Council (ICC) have confirmed that Zimbabwe’s Roy Kaia has been suspended from bowling in international cricket after the off-spinner’s action was found to have been illegal. 

The 29-year-old off-spinner was reported with a suspect bowling action during the one-off Test against Bangladesh in July, post which an expert panel reviewed footage of Kaia’s bowling action. 

Following a thorough assessment, the expert panel concluded that the off-spinner’s deliveries ‘exceeded the 15 degrees level of tolerance permitted under the regulations and his bowling action was illegal.’

Kaia, however, will still be allowed to bowl in domestic cricket in Zimbabwe, should Zimbabwe Cricket provide consent for the same (according to Article 11.5 of the Regulations). 

Kaia can apply for a re-assessment after modifying his bowling action in accordance with the ICC Regulations.
