South African off-spinner Johan Botha has been suspended from bowling in international cricket for throwing, the International Cricket Council (ICC) said on Tuesday.

"Mr Botha's suspension is with immediate effect after independent analysis found that he was bowling with an illegal action during South Africa's third Test match against Australia in January," an ICC statement said.

Botha, 23, made his Test debut in the match, taking two wickets, one in each innings.
