Vitori action to undergo further scrutiny


Zimbabwe fast bowler Brian Vitori has been cited for a suspected illegal action for the second time following the tri-nation series with Sri Lanka and West Indies.

Vitori was suspended earlier this year after being reported following a Twenty20 International against Bangladesh in January, but he was cleared to return in June.

After two games with the Zimbabwe A side he returned to full international duty on November 27 for the final with Sri Lanka - a game Zimbabwe lost by six wickets.

Vitori took 3-52 in his nine overs in Bulawayo but concerns about his action were raised during the match, which will lead to further analysis.

"With Vitori being reported again, he will be required to submit to further testing within 14 days," an ICC statement read.

"He is, however, permitted to continue bowling in international cricket until the results of the testing are known."
