Snehal Pradhan, the India women medium-pacer, can resume bowling at international level after undergoing remedial work on an illegal action, the ICC has said.

"A comprehensive analysis revealed that her mean elbow extension was now within the 15-degree level of tolerance permitted under the relevant regulations," the ICC said, "But she has been advised to be conscious of ensuring her elbow flexion levels are minimised at upper arm horizontal to ensure she remains well within the extension tolerance threshold."

Pradhan's action was reported in July 2011 after a one-day international against England in Derby. She was tested later that month in Perth and suspended from bowling after results proved that her action was illegal because all her deliveries exceeded the 15-degree level of tolerance by an average of two degrees.

Pradhan's action will continue to be scrutinised by match officials to ensure it remains legal, the ICC said.
