In advance of any re-test, a player who has been banned from bowling in international cricket is required to identify the various types of delivery he wants assessed, with a view to bowling those types of delivery in international matches should his suspension be lifted. Utseya identified his off-spin and a variety of slow medium deliveries as the types of delivery he would be bowling.
Utseya’s off-spin deliveries were also analysed but measured as illegal and as such this type of delivery remains illegal and he cannot bowl it in international cricket.
The umpires are still at liberty to report Utseya in the future if they believe he is displaying a suspect action and not reproducing the legal action that was analysed during the re-test.
To assist in comparing the action used in the lab to the action used in upcoming matches, umpires have been provided with images and video footage of Utseya’s remodeled legal bowling action.
