Off-spinner Shane Shillingford is available again for West Indies after being cleared by the International Cricket Council of an illegal bowling action.

The ICC informed the West Indies Cricket Board on Saturday of the result of a bowling analysis in Perth, Australia on May 25.

Shillingford was reported by the umpires after the first Test against Sri Lanka in November in Galle, where he took five wickets in a draw. He was banned in December when Tests showed his elbow extended 17 degrees - beyond the 15 degrees permitted.

However, five months of remedial work with West Indies and Dominica officials fixed his technique.

Shillingford, who has played five Tests, says "having to overcome this hurdle has made me stronger and more determined to succeed.
