Zimbabwe all-rounder Prosper Utseya has been banned from bowling in international matches after his action was found to be illegal.

It is understood that Utseya was found to be flexing his elbow over the 15-degree limit for every single delivery he bowled during the biomechanical test at Cardiff Metropolitan University.

Zimbabwe Cricket released a statement saying that they are currently looking forĀ “relevant technical expertise to work with Utseya to modify his action in the shortest possible time, after which an application will be made to the ICC for his re-assessment”.

Utseya was reported for having a suspicious bowling action following the third ODI against South Africa in Bulawayo on August 21.
