Bangalore, Oct 20: India's left-arm spinner is under BCCI's radar for a suspected bowling action and is going through rehabilitation to correct it.

According to a report on "Times Now" TV channel on Monday, Ojha is currently going through rehabilitation to revamp his action.

Former Test umpire AV Jayaprakash, who is part of BCCI's Illegal Actions Committee, revealed today on the channel that Ojha was one of the bowlers identified with suspected bowling action.

Hyderabad's Ojha, who is currently out of the Indian team, was last week picked to play for South Zone in the Duleep Trophy. South will face East Zone in Lahli (Haryana) in the semi-finals from October 22.

The 28-year-old Ojha has played 24 Tests, 18 ODIs and 6 T20Is.

In 2012, former India captain Bishan Singh Bedi had said Ojha has a suspect action.

"I am not a great fan of (Pragyan) Ojha. That is because of his suspect action. That's how bluntly I can put it," Bedi had said in July, 2012.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has launched a major crackdown on bowlers with illegal actions. Pakistan's Saeed Ajmal was banned from bowling recently, for the same.
