Junaid Zia, the Lahore Eagles fast bowler, has been reported for a suspect bowling action after the group match on Wednesday against Rawalpindi Rams in the Faysal Bank Super Eight Twenty20 tournament in Rawalpindi.
Zia was reported by the on-field umpires Islam Khan and Khalid Mahmood after the game, which the Eagles won by 34 runs. Zia bowled four overs, conceded 14 runs and took three wickets.
"On-field umpires reported Junaid's (Zia) action as suspect and we have reported it back to the PCB," Arshad Pervez, the match referee, told ESPNcricinfo. "It's a routine report and the PCB will further scrutinize it at the National Cricket Academy."
Zia, the son of former PCB chairman Retd Gen Tauqir Zia, has played four ODIs for Pakistan, since his international debut in 2003-04. He first made an impression in Pakistan's junior ranks, and was part of the Under-19 World Cup squad in 2002.
In the same match, the Rams captain Sohail Tanvir was fined his full match fee for making comments on the umpires. Tanvir was found guilty under clause 2.2.3 of PCB Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel.
