Dubai: Nov 30, 2013


United Arab Emirates Nasir Aziz has been reported for a suspected illegal bowling action following his side’s 62-run loss to Ireland in the second semi-final of the ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier at Abu Dhabi.


Aziz was reported on Friday by umpires Michael Gough, Ranmore Martinesz, Steve Davis, Derek Walker and match referee David Jukes under the ‘ICC Regulations for the Review of Bowlers’, for a Suspected Illegal Bowling Action.


This is the second time that Aziz has been reported during the tournament and he is now required to submit a report to an ICC analysis.


Following the first report, Aziz was required to submit to a Home Board Analysis which concluded that Aziz employed a legal bowling action. Hence, he was permitted to continue bowling.


If the ICC assessment concludes that Aziz employs an illegal bowling action, he will immediately be suspended from bowling in any international cricket for one year.
