Cape Cobras offspinner Sybrand Engelbrecht has been cleared to resume bowling with immediate effect following a nod from an independent assessment. Engelbrecht 's bowling action was found within the parameters contained in the CSA Regulations for the Review of Bowlers Reported with Suspected Illegal Bowling Actions, after it was re-assessed on January 12.

Cricket South Africa also announced that the ban on Dolphins offspinner Prenelan Subrayen, who also had his bowling action re-assessed on the same date, stands as it is, after his action was deemed illegal.

Subrayen, 22, can't bowl in any matches organised under CSA's purview until his action is re-assessed and found to be within the permissible parameters. Both spinners were tested at CSA's Powerade Centre of Excellence in Pretoria.

Engelbrecht was pulled up during a Ram Slam T20 game between Cobras and Dolphins last month. He was picked as a specialist batsman by Cobras while the result of his assessment was still under process.

Meanwhile, Subrayen hasn't featured in any domestic fixture in South Africa since being suspended for an illegal action in November.
