Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - SPORTS -

In­dia’s part-time off-spin­ner Am­bati Rayudu has been re­ported for a sus­pect bowl­ing ac­tion dur­ing the first one-day in­ter­na­tional against Aus­tralia in Syd­ney, the In­ter­na­tional Cricket Coun­cil (ICC) said on Sun­day.

Rayudu must now have his bowl­ing ac­tion tested within 14 days but can con­tinue to bowl at the in­ter­na­tional level un­til the test re­sults are out. “The match of­fi­cials’ re­port, which was handed over to the In­dia team man­age­ment, cited con­cerns about the le­gal­ity of the 33-year-old off­spin­ner’s bowl­ing ac­tion,” the ICC said in a state­ment.

Rayudu bowled two overs for 13 runs against Aus­tralia at the Syd­ney Cricket Ground on Satur­day, as In­dia lost the first one-day in­ter­na­tional by 34 runs. The se­ries re­sumes in Ade­laide on Tues­day with the fi­nal match in Mel­bourne next Fri­day.
