Jenny Gunn, the England fast bowler, and Rose Fernando, the Sri Lankan offspinner, have been reported for suspect bowling actions. Gerard Abood and Kathy Cross, the umpires for the World Cup match between England and Sri Lanka at the Manuka Oval on Saturday, said they had concerns over Gunn's short-pitched deliveries and Fernando's faster balls and hence requested the ICC to review their action.

Abood and Cross submitted a report to the ICC. Pending the result of the ICC's assessment, the two bowlers can continue to play and bowl in international cricket.

Gunn, who plays for Western Australia, was suspended from Australian domestic cricket for an "illegal bowling action" just days before the start of the World Cup but Cricket Australia's findings did not stop her from participating in the tournament. Gunn has challenged the findings and CA's bowling review group will conduct a hearing into the matter by March 12. She has also appealed against the ban.
