Cooper reported for suspect action
Umpires call RR medium pacer for bowling some deliveries against MI with illegal action
Rajasthan Royals bowler Kevon Cooper has been reported for bowling certain deliveries with a suspected illegal action during the Pepsi IPL match against Mumbai Indians played in Mumbai last evening.
The bowler was reported by on-field umpires Rod Tucker and K Srinath, along with third umpire S Ravi, at the conclusion of the match.
Under the IPL Suspected Illegal Bowling Action policy, Mr. Cooper may request an Official Assessment from the BCCI Suspect Bowling Action Committee, which comprises S Venkataraghavan, Javagal Srinath, AV Jayaprakash and BCCI Honorary Secretary, Sanjay Patel. However, pending any clearance by the Committee, Mr. Cooper would be available to be selected to play and bowl for Rajasthan Royals in the Pepsi IPL 2015 season but should he be reported a second time, he would be suspended from bowling for the remainder of that season.
