Dubai - Zimbabwe bowler Prosper Utseya was cleared to deliver slow, medium deliveries but not off-spin in international cricket on Wednesday.

The International Cricket Council made the ruling, two days after allowing off-spinners Sachithra Senanayake of Sri Lanka and Kane Williamson of New Zealand to bowl following remedial work and retesting.

Utseya was suspended from bowling in October, and retests of his slow medium deliveries measured within the 15-degree level of tolerance. However, the ICC said his of-fspin remained illegal, and he cannot bowl it in internationals.

Utseya, playing for Zimbabwe since 2004, has been named in their preliminary 30-man squad for the Cricket World Cup in February.
