Ambati Rayudu.

India batsman Ambati Rayudu was reported for a suspect bowling action after delivering two overs in the first ODI against Australia in Sydney.

The International Cricket Council announced that the part-time spinner’s action was reported by match officials.

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

The 33-year-old’s action will be tested within 14 days, but he is allowed to bowl until the results are announced.

Rayudu gave away 13 runs runs in his two overs in the Sydney ODI which India lost by 34 runs.

As soon as Rayudu started bowling, questions were raised about the legality of his action with former India spinner Bishan Bedi among the first to do so on Twitter.
