Left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha, who had
been banned for a suspect bowling action,
has been cleared by BCCI and is available
to play in First-Class matches with
immediate effect. Ojha had earlier been
asked to report to the ICC-accredited
testing centre in Chennai after he was
reported in December, 2014. He had
subsequently been withdrawn from
Hyderabad's Ranji Trophy squad.

Ojha underwent official assessment in the
Chennai testing centre on January 30,
2015 under the surveillance of high
performance coaches from BCCI and
biomechanic experts. Ojha is all set to
feature in Hyderabad's Ranji fixture
against Himachal on Friday.

The spinner, who has played 24 Tests and
18 ODIs for India, last made his
international appearance way back in
November 2013 as his action was under
scrutiny. Hyderabad Cricket Association
requested the BCCI to have Ojha's action
tested after the bowler had taken some
corrective measures with the help of

The latest test results have found that the
left-arm spinner's action now satisfies
the requirement, which means that he can
resume bowling immediately.

"National level cricket player, Pragyan
Ojha has been permitted by the Board of
Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to bowl
in domestic matches with
immediateeffect. His elbow extension was
found within the permissible limits in all
deliveries bowled during the Test
matches," stated a BCCI release.

A delighted Ojha thanked the BCCI for
coming up with the decision to allow him
to resume bowling. "I look forward to
playing domestic matches. I am grateful to
the BCCI for arriving at the decision in
such a short time. I hope that I get the
opportunity and honour to play for India
soon and wish the Indian cricket team all
the best for the World Cup."
