May 01, 2009 19:53 IST

Rajasthan Royals pacer Kamran Khan has been reported for suspect bowling action and the team management and Technical Committee of the Indian Premier League informed about it.

After Thursday's match between Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings, on-field umpires Rudi Koertzen and Gary Baxter felt Kamran had a suspect bowling action on certain deliveries.

Footage of the match was obtained and examined by all the three umpires, including TV umpire Amish Saheba, and they felt further action is necessary under the MCC's Laws of Cricket section 24/3 that governs the game.

The matter has now been referred to Rajasthan Royals' management and the IPL Technical Committee as per the MCC's Laws of Cricket.

"I have officially received a copy of the match umpires' report duly signed by all the three umpires and the video footage for the game at the Centurion," IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi said.

"The matter has now been referred to the team management of the Rajasthan Royals and the IPL's technical committee as per the Laws of Cricket that govern our game. I now await the report from the Technical Committee and will then decide on the future course of action," Modi added.
