An independent assessment of Brathwaite's bowling action was performed at the Loughborough testing centre in England on 31 August.

"...The bowling action of Windies off-spinner Kraigg Brathwaite has been found to be legal, and the player can continue bowling in international cricket," the ICC said in a statement.

The ICC said that the amount of elbow extension in Brathwaite's deliveries was well within the 15-degree level of tolerance permitted under the world body's regulations.

Brathwaite was reported during the first Test against England at Edgbaston last month.

The 24-year-old has played 40 Tests, grabbing 12 wickets so far. His 10 ODI appearances have fetched him just a solitary scalp so far.
