Ehsan Khan's action passed legal

ESPN - Monday 12th March, 2018

Ehsan Khan, the Hong Kong offspinner, has had his bowling action cleared by the ICC. Ehsan's action was reported by the match officials following his side's game against Afghanistan at the World Cup Qualifiers last week, prompting the ICC to access footage of his bowling from Hong Kong's next game, against Zimbabwe. That footage passed legal by members of the ICC's Panel of Human Movement Specialists.

The ICC said in a statement: "Ehsan's bowling action was filmed in the next match he played after being reported, which was against Zimbabwe on Saturday, and the video footage of his bowling spells were provided to the Event Panel of Helen Bayne and Mark King, who are both members of the ICC Panel of Human Movement Specialists, for analysis and assessment.

"The Event Panel concluded on Sunday that Ehsan Khan employs a legal bowling action, and, as such, he can continue bowling in international cricket."

Going into the tournament's final round of group-stage matches, Ehsan is the joint-highest wicket-taker, with nine wickets at 12.55 and an economy rate of 4.52. He was pivotal to Hong Kong's defeat of Afghanistan on Thursday, taking 4 for 33 in a 30-run win.
