Sus­pect bowl­ing by In­dia’s Rayudu

The Herald (South Africa) - - Sport -

In­dia’s Am­bati Rayudu has been re­ported for a sus­pect bowl­ing ac­tion in the first one-day in­ter­na­tional against Aus­tralia, the In­ter­na­tional Cricket Coun­cil said on Sun­day.

The part-time spin­ner’s ac­tion was flagged by match of­fi­cials, cit­ing con­cerns about its le­gal­ity, after the match in Syd­ney.

“Rayudu’s bowl­ing ac­tion will now be scru­ti­nised fur­ther un­der the ICC process re­lat­ing to sus­pected il­le­gal bowl­ing ac­tions,” the world gov­ern­ing body said.

The 33-year-old’s ac­tion must be tested within 14 days, but he may bowl un­til the re­sults are out. –
