Zimbabwe all-rounder Malcolm Waller has been suspended from bowling just seven weeks out from the World Cup, the International Cricket Council (ICC) said on Tuesday.
The off-spinner was reported during Zimbabwe’s tour of Bangladesh last month and underwent analysis performed at the ICC’s High Performance Centre in Pretoria.
“The analysis revealed that all of his off-spin deliveries exceeded the 15 degrees level of tolerance permitted under the regulations,” the ICC said in a statement.
The 30-year-old will have an opportunity for reassessment, but faces a race against time with the World Cup beginning on February 14.
