4) Johan Botha

The Proteas’ all-rounder bowls the off-spinner as well as the doosra. He was under the scanner right from the start as he was reported for an illegal action after his very first test match in 2006. He was suspended from bowling a month later and failed to get a clearance as he was exceeding the permissible limit.

Later that year he was cleared by the ICC and made a national comeback in 2007. After 2 years, he was again reported and his doosra was found to have an extension of 26.7 degrees which was way ahead of the allowed limit.

He was later cleared by ICC and kept playing for South Africa. The right-hander continues playing for various T20 franchises around the globe.
