Javeria Khan, the Pakistan offspinner, has been reported for a suspect bowling action, during the match against Sri Lanka at St Kitts in the ICC Women's World Twenty20 on Thursday. She was reported by the on-field umpires Rod Tucker and Marais Erasmus as well as third umpire Shahvir Tarapore.

"We believe that Javeria Wadood straightens her arm during her delivery and appears to be more than the allowable 15 degrees," the umpires stated in their official report. "It is in all deliveries not one specific delivery. We therefore request the necessary action be instituted to deal with this matter."

Javeria will be required to undergo an independent analysis of her action by a member of the ICC panel of human movement specialists, appointed in consultation with the PCB. This analysis and report must take place within seven days of the report being received by the board. If she is reported again during the independent analysis she will then be suspended from bowling until she undertakes remedial action and is reassessed.
