Yes he can. In fact he can do this in same over too. All a bowler needs is to inform the umpire before changing his bowling arm. In 1996 World Cup match between Sri Lanka and Kenya, Sri Lanka's Hashan Tillakaratne bowled the first three balls of the last over left arm and the next three right arm, his natural bowling arm.

In the current era of cricket, we see batsmen using switch hits to play a ball. That is, while playing a ball they change their batting side (left to right handed and vice versa) just before the ball comes to them. My question is, can a bowler bowl a switch ball? Meaning, can a left hand bowler bowl right handed to a batsman?
