Rajasthan Royals all-rounder Kevon Cooper has been reported for having a suspicious bowling action following his side’s five-wicket loss to the Mumbai Indians.

Under the Indian Premier League (IPL) Suspected Illegal Bowling Action policy, Cooper can request to have an official assessment from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Suspect Bowling Action Committee, which consists of Srinivas Venkataraghavan, Javagal Srinath, AV Jayaprakash and BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel.

If Cooper were to be cleared by the committee, he would be allowed to bowl during the 2015 IPL season. However, if his bowling action were to be questioned once again, he could potentially be banned from bowling for the entire season.

This is not the first time that Cooper has been in trouble for his bowling action as the same thing happened during the Caribbean T20 league in 2011, after which he had to make some changes to his action at the University of Western Australia in Perth.
