Zimbabwe left-arm fast bowler Brian Vitori's bowling action has been found to be legal, the ICC confirmed, following remedial work and a re-test performed at the University of Pretoria on June 10.

The re-test revealed that the bend at Vitori's elbow was within the permissible 15-degree limit for all his deliveries. He is now free to resume bowling in international cricket and at domestic tournaments worldwide.

Vitori's action had been reported after the third T20I against Bangladesh in Khulna on January 20, and he was subsequently suspended in February.

Vitori, 26, has played four Tests, 19 ODIs and 11 T20Is for Zimbabwe after making his international debut in August 2011.
