Amit Singh handed IPL all-clear

Durban: Rajasthan Royals' Amit Singh has been cleared to bowl by the Indian Prmeir League after it's Technical Committee found the pacer's action within ICC's tolerance limit.

Rajasthan pacer Amit Singh had been cited for suspected illegal action by umpires Daryl Harper and K Hariharan during the Royals' match against the Chennai Super Kings at Kimberley last weekend.

"Amit Singh's biomechanical testing report showed that all four types of deliveries tested, - his stock delivery, the off-break slower delivery, off-cutter and leg-cutter - were legal and within ICC's legal tolerance limits," an IPL statement said.

"The report was provided by Prof Tim Noakes (Human Movement Expert), Dr Kerith Aginsky (Cricket Bowling Specialist/Biokineticist) and Dr Michele van Rooyen (Video Analysis Specialist) from the Department of Human Biology in the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Cape Town.

"For all deliveries Amit Singh was seen to extend his arm from the arm horizontal position and consistently flex his elbow again prior to ball release, thus not constituting a throw. Therefore, for all deliveries the elbow angles reported are of the amount of elbow flexion and not extension between arm horizontal to ball release," the statemet said.
