Kolkata Knight Riders off-spinner Suryakumar Yadav has been reported for a suspicious bowling action following his side’s eight-wicket loss to the Chennai Super Kings in the final of the Champions League Twenty20 (CLT20).
Yadav, who only bowls part-time, is the fifth bowler to be reported in the tournament after team-mate Sunil Narine, Prenelan Subrayen of the Sunfoil Dolphins and Adnan Rasool and Mohammad Hafeez of the Lahore Lions.
Yadav has now been placed on a ‘warning list’, which means that if he is reported again, he will not be able to bowl in any Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) events like the CLT20 and Indian Premier League (IPL).
However, Yadav does have the option of getting his action tested by the suspect bowling action committee.
Yadav was reported by on-field umpires Rod Tucker and Kumar Dharmasena, along with third umpire S Ravi.
