India‘s Ambati Rayudu has been reported for a suspect bowling action during the first ODI against Australia on Saturday.

Rayudu will undergo testing within two weeks but can continue bowling in international cricket till the results of his testing are known.

The 33-year-old offspinner bowled just two overs, conceding 13 runs in them at the Sydney Cricket Ground Australia went on to post 288/5.

“The match officials’ report, which was handed over to the India team management, cited concerns about the legality of the 33-year-old off-spinner’s bowling action,” ICC said in a media release on Sunday. “Rayudu’s bowling action will now be scrutinised further under the ICC process relating to suspected illegal bowling actions reported in Tests, ODIs and T20Is.”

Rayudu, a primarily middle-order batsman, has taken three wickets in 46 ODIs at 41.33 and Saturday was one of the rare occasions when the part-timer rolled his arm over in an international match.
