Poonam Raut, the India women's team left-arm spinner, has been reported for a suspected illegal bowling action. She was reported by on-field umpires Ulhas Gandhe and S Ravi, after India's second Twenty20 match against England, which was played on Saturday in Mumbai.

Raut had returned figures of 3 for 12 in four overs during India's victory in that match, her first wickets in Twenty20s. She has been part of the Indian team for a year now, making her debut in the one-day World Cup in Australia last March.

Raut's bowling action will now be scrutinised further under the ICC process relating to women's Tests, ODIs and T20Is. She will be required to submit to an independent analysis of her action by a member of the ICC panel of human movement specialists, appointed in consultation with the BCCI. This analysis must take place within 21 days from the report being received by the BCCI, and the report of the analysis should be filed with the ICC within 2 weeks of the analysis.

If Raut is found to have bowled with an illegal action during the independent analysis then she will be suspended from bowling until she undertakes remedial action and reassessment. India's next international engagement is the World Twenty20 which begins in May.
