Ambati Rayudu banned from bowling over suspect action

India’s Ambati Rayudu has been banned from bowling in international matches because of a suspect action.

Part-time bowler Rayudu was reported after India's one-day international defeat by Australia on 12 January.

He failed to submit to a test of his action within the stipulated 14 days.

Primarily a batsman and part of the India ODI team currently playing a five-match series in New Zealand, Rayudu bowled two over for 13 runs in the match in Sydney.

The International Cricket Council said in a statement: "The suspension will remain in place until he is tested and can demonstrate he is able to bowl with a legal action.

"Rayudu may be allowed to bowl in domestic cricket events played under the auspices of the BCCI (Indian cricket board)."
