Johan Botha bowling action under testing :Arthur confident Botha will be cleared

South African coach Mickey Arthur is confident that Johan Botha will be cleared of having a suspect bowling action by the ICC despite being reported for a second time."Johan has been through this process before and was cleared to continue his career and I am confident that this will happen again," Arthur said in a statement."I don't believe anything major has changed in his action since then but we will obviously respect the process and the outcome," he added.Arthur said the South African team will fully support Botha."Johan is a man of tremendous self belief and character. He has shown that both in the way he dealt with the original setback in 2006 and again by the manner in which he led the Standard Bank ODI squad when Graeme Smith was injured."And, with the support of his team mates and management, I am sure he will put this latest setback behind him as well," Arthur added," he said.
