Yadav is the fifth bowler at Champions League T20 (CLT20) to be reported and placed on the "warning list". Yadav was reported by the umpires in the CLT20 final last night. Chennai Super Kings (CSK) won the title defeating KKR by 8 wickets. Part-time spinner Yadav bowled 3 overs and had figures of 0/21.
"Kolkata Knight Riders player Suryakumar Yadav has been reported for a suspected illegal bowling action during tonight's Champions League Twenty20 final against Chennai Super Kings at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru and has been placed on the warning list," a media release from CLT20 said on Saturday night (October 4).
"After all video evidence of the match was taken into account, on-field umpires Rod Tucker and Kumar Dharmasena along with third umpire S. Ravi felt that there was a flex action in his elbow beyond the acceptable limit when bowling during the match," it added.
Under the CLT20 Suspected Illegal Bowling Action policy, Yadav may request an Official Assessment from the BCCI Suspect Bowling Action Committee.
If a player receives a report while on the warning list, the player shall be suspended from bowling in any matches organised by the BCCI until such date as he is cleared.
A player suspended from bowling may continue to be selected to play in matches, however he will not be entitled to bowl.
KKR's another spinner Sunil Narine was reported twice and banned from bowling in the final. During the tournament, Lahore Lions' Adnan Rasool, Mohammad Hafeez and Dolphins' Prenelan Subrayen were also reported for suspected illegal action.
