"We'd like to commend Chris and the Thunder for the way they have approached this process with complete co-operation and respect," Cricket Australia's Head of Operations Peter Roach said in a statement posted on 'cricket.com.au'.

"Chris undertook testing at the earliest possible time and satisfactorily replicated his bowling action in the controlled environment.

"We look forward to working with Chris in the coming months and conducting further testing once the suspension period has elapsed," he added.

Green's participation in the IPL would be subject to approval of the league's governing council as his ban would still be in force when the event gets underway on 29 March.
