Sussex vice-captain James Kirtley is refusing to let renewed scrutiny of his bowling action put a "slur" on his past and future achievements in the game.
The 30-year-old, capped four times at Test level by England, has been suspended by the England and Wales Cricket Board and ordered to undergo remedial work on his action at his county and at the National Academy in Loughborough.
The order follows two reports on his action made by umpires during 2005 county matches and confirmed by an independent assessment, but Kirtley has vowed to get it right.
"At any time we can ask for the second analysis (of his action) and if I'm cleared there, then hopefully I can continue to bowl next year," he said.
"Would this break a lesser man? It might well do. The thought of jumping on a plane and going off with a one-way ticket somewhere is quite appealing, but you can't do that.
"I've had a very successful career that I'm very proud of and I don't want something like this to put a slur on all that I've achieved."
It is not the first time Kirtley's action has been questioned. It was examined before he won one-day international honours in 2001 and was deemed illegal by International Cricket Council referee Colonel Naushad Ali following a match in Kenya in October that year.
He was cleared to play by the ECB in May 2002 and went on to win Test honours, and though "frustrated and a little disappointed" to find himself in this position again, he believes he will be in good hands under fast-bowling coach Troy Cooley and former Sussex coach Peter Moores at the Academy.
"Troy has made a big difference to the England team and it would be a privilege to work with him and hopefully I can benefit from his expertise," he said.
" The support I have received from Sussex has also been fantastic and I'm very grateful for it."
Kirtley is putting no exact timescale on the work needed but has made it clear he wants to be ready and available for the 2006 county season.
"At the moment, I want to rest after what was a very hard season but I also need to allow myself a bit of a cushion around January and February to partake in preseason with a clear head and no distractions.
"The last time I ( underwent the assessment) I went on to have a very successful summer so I can hopefully look forward to a successful 2006."
Sussex manager Mark Robinson, who will oversee the work, said: "James has been here before and has cleared his name. We have every confidence that he can do it again."
