Taylor, 22, was suspended from bowling in May 2013 after concerns over the legality of his action but passed a reassessment last week.

A statement read: "ECB today confirmed that Jack Taylor's suspension from bowling for England and in competitive county cricket has been lifted with immediate effect.

"This follows a reassessment as permitted within the ECB regulations that was carried out on 4 February 2014.

"This was subsequent to a period of remedial work undertaken by Jack Taylor on his bowling action after an initial analysis in May 2013."
