West Indian Pune Warriors all-rounder Marlon Samuels has been reported for a suspected illegal bowling action, the Indian Premier League (IPL) have confirmed.

The off-spinner was reported by on-field umpires Aleem Dar and Bruce Oxenford during Pune's match against the Chennai Super Kings.

Under the terms of the IPL's policy regarding bowlers who have been reported, Samuels may continue to play and bowl for Pune but would be suspended for the remainder of the tournament should he be reported for a second time.

Pune went on to win the match in question after Samuels conceded 29 runs in his four overs, his team going to the top of the table as a result.

He was suspended from bowling in international cricket in February 2008 but after undergoing remedial work, was cleared to bowl again in September, 2011.
