Ambati Rayudu suspended from bowling in international cricket
The International Cricket Council (ICC) has suspended India’s Ambati Rayudu from bowling in international cricket after the Indian player opted against getting his suspect action tested within the stipulated 14 day period.
ICC said in its statement: “The player elected not to submit to a test of his bowling action within the stipulated period of 14 days of being reported for a suspect action, and therefore he has been suspended with immediate effect.”
Rayudu was reported for a suspect action during the first ODI against Australia on January 13.
The action was taken as per the ICC regulations clause 4.2 which deals with the legality of bowling actions. The suspension will be applicable until he is tested, and can demonstrate he is able to bowl with a legal action, the world body stated.
