Gunn And Fernando Reported For Suspect Actions

England's Jenny Gunn and Sri Lanka's Rose Fernando have been reported because of suspected illegal actions during the opening weekend of fixtures in the Women's World Cup in Australia.

Both players were reported during the match between the two sides, which was won by England by the margin of 100 runs at the Manuka Oval in Canberra.

Fast bowler Gunn's short balls and off-spinner Fernando's quicker deliveries raised concerns with the umpires.

Last month, Gunn was suspended from playing state cricket in Australia following similar concerns although she is due to appeal.

Both players will now have to undergo immediate assessment of their action with remedial action if required.
