Sharjah, Oct 31 (IANS) Pakistani off-spinner Bilal Asif’s bowling action has been cleared after it was found to be within the legal limits, the International Cricket Council (ICC) said on Friday. The bowling action of the 30-year-old spinner was reported as a suspect during the third One-Day International against Zimbabwe at Harare on October 3.
