Vikrant Shetty, the UAE offspinning allrounder, has been reported for a suspected illegal action during the drawn Intercontinental Cup clash against Afghanistan. Shetty, 27, made his first-class debut in that match, scored a half-century in the first innings and earned figures of 5-1-28-0 and 6-6-0-0. He was reported at the end of the match by on-field umpires Ahsan Raza and Buddhi Pradhan, and third umpire Iftikhar Ali.

ICC policy - in the case of a development tournament game - requires the home board of the reported player, in this case the Emirates Cricket Board (ECB), to initiate as assessment. In the interim, the player is allowed to take part in international cricket. UAE play two 50-over games against Afghanistan on October 10 and 12.

The ECB has three weeks to make arrangements to assess Shetty's bowling action. Once completed, it will have to report to the ICC about the assessment and any relevant action.
