REPORTING PROCEDURE

2.1 Pursuant to the circumstances in clause 1.4, at the conclusion of the Match, the Match Officials shall meet to discuss the action of the Player whose action has raised suspicion. During this post Match meeting, it is expected, although not a requirement, that the Match Officials will watch TV replays and/or slow motion replays to assist the Match Referee to determine whether or not he should write a report detailing his concerns about the Player’s bowling action (a “Report” and “Reported” and “Reporting” shall be construed accordingly). The Report shall be in the form prescribed by BCCI from time to time.

2.2 If appropriate, at the conclusion of the Match Officials’ meeting, the Match Referee shall write a Report, including, where relevant, whether those concerns relate to the Player’s bowling action generally or whether they relate to one or more specific types of delivery.

2.3 In the case where there is disagreement amongst the Match Officials regarding the Player’s bowling action, any member of the Match Officials’ group may make a written submission to the Match Referee detailing his concern about the bowling action of the Player, including, where relevant, whether those concerns relate to the Player’s bowling action generally or whether they relate to one or more specific types of delivery. The Match Referee shall decide in his absolute discretion whether to make a Report in such circumstances.

2.4 As soon as practicable, the Match Referee shall give a copy of the Report to the BCCI. For expediency, such Report may be handed over to the Tournament Operations Manager for the Match, who will deliver the Report to the IPL COO. BCCI will as soon as practicable provide a copy of the Report to the Player’s Team Manager.

2.5 In the event that the Player’s Team Manager has left the ground prior to the Report being available, BCCI shall attempt to make contact with the Player’s Team Manager to inform him of the Report and will use all reasonable endeavours to ensure that it is provided to the Player’s Team Manager as soon as is practically possible.

2.6 BCCI will arrange for a copy of the available television footage of the Player’s bowling action from the Match to be produced and made available to the Player and Player’s Team Manager, as soon as is practically possible.

2.7 Upon receipt of the Report from the Match Referee, BCCI shall write to the Committee confirming that the Player has been Reported, enclosing a copy of the Report and the television footage of the Player’s bowling action from the Match.

2.8 As soon as practicable once the Player’s Team Manager has received a copy of the Report, BCCI shall make a media statement to the effect that the Player has been Reported.

2.9 BCCI shall send all Match Referees and those Umpires who are to officiate in subsequent Matches involving a Reported Player, the relevant Report and the television footage.
