Pradhan’s bowling action will now be scrutinised further under the ICC process relating to women’s Tests, ODIs and T20Is. Clause 2 the ICC regulations provides as follows:
- The player is 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 of the report being received by the BCCI
- The report of the analysis must be filed with the ICC within 14 days of it occurring
- If the player 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 is reassessed
- Until the receipt of the report of the independent analysis by the BCCI, the player may continue to bowl
