CSA clears Botha’s bowling action

Cricket South Africa on Friday cleared Johan Botha and Rusty Theron to continue their bowling careers.

The pair were subjected to precautionary tests this week after the match officials expressed concerns following the SuperSport Series match between the Nashua Dolphins and the Chevrolet Warriors.

”We are satisfied with the preliminary results of the tests carried out on their respective bowling actions,” commented CSA CEO
Gerald Majola, ”and these actions fall within the prescribed laws governing fair bowling.”

Both Botha and Theron will turn out for the Warriors in their MTN40 match against the Dolphins at Sahara Stadium Kingsmead on Friday. — Sapa
