Bangladesh's medium pacer Al-Amin Hossain's bowling action Wednesday was cleared by the International Cricket Council (ICC), which also allowed the bowler to resume international cricket.

"The bowling action of Bangladesh fast bowler has been found to be legal following an independent test and the player can continue to bowl in international cricket," the ICC said.

"An analysis revealed that the amount of elbow extension in Al-Amin's bowling action for all deliveries was within the 15-degree level of tolerance permitted under the ICC regulations," it said.
