India's Ambati Rayudu suspended from bowling in international cricket

The International Cricket Council (ICC) today said that India's batsman and part-time off-spinner Ambati Rayudu has been suspended from bowling in international cricket after being reported for suspect action two weeks ago.
"The player elected not to submit to a test of his bowling action within the stipulated period of 14 days of being reported for a suspect action, and therefore he has been suspended with immediate effect in accordance with clause 4.2 of the ICC regulations, which can be found here," a press release from ICC said.
The suspension will remain in place until he is tested, and can demonstrate he is able to bowl with a legal action, it said.
The 33-year-old player was reported on January 13 for a suspect action during the first one-day international of India's ODI series against Australia in Sydney.
However, according to Article 11.5 of the Regulations and with the consent of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Rayudu may be allowed to bowl in domestic cricket events played under the auspices of the BCCI, the release added.
