Rajasthan Royals right-arm medium-fast bowler Amit Singh has been reported for a suspect bowling action for the second time in the IPL. On-field umpires Gary Baxter and Kumar Dharmasena reported Amit, citing his suspect bowling action on certain deliveries, during Rajasthan's match against the Chennai Super Kings in Kimberley on Saturday.

The matter has now been referred by the IPL to the Rajasthan team management and the tournament's technical committee as per the Laws of Cricket that govern the game, the organisers said in a statement today.

On completion of the match, footage was obtained and re-examined by all the three match officials, including third umpire Amiesh Saheba, and it was decided that further action was necessary under the Laws of Cricket section 24.3 that governs the game.

Amit had earlier been reported by umpires Daryl Harper and K Hariharan after Rajasthan's match against Royal Challengers Bangalore last Thursday. He is the second bowler, after team-mate Kamran Khan, to be reported for a suspect action in the second season.

Amit, who can continue to play until he is proven guilty of an illegal action, is Rajasthan's third-highest wicket-taker with eight wickets from three matches at 6.62.
