Amit Singh, the Rajasthan Royals right-arm medium-fast bowler, has been reported for a suspect action. He is the second bowler, after Kamran Khan, also of Rajasthan, to be reported during the current IPL.

Daryl Harper and K Hariharan, the on-field umpires for the IPL game between Rajasthan and Royal Challengers Bangalore at Centurion on May 7, observed that Amit, 27, had a suspect action on certain deliveries. The two on-field umpires and TV umpire Tyron Wijewardene reviewed footage of the game and believed Amit's action needed further scrutiny. The matter has now been referred to the Rajasthan management and the IPL's technical committee.

Amit, who can continue to play until he is proven guilty of an illegal action, was Man of the Match in Thursday's game in Centurion, taking 4 for 19 as Rajasthan won by seven wickets. He has played two matches, with seven wickets at an average of 4.
