Lahore Lions skipper and offspinner Mohammad Hafeez has been reported for a suspect bowling action during the Champions League T20.

According to an ESPNCricinfo report, Hafeez, who starred with bowling figures of 2/18, was reported by umpires Kumar Dharmasena, Vineet Kulkarni and Anil Chaudhary after his side's 16-run victory over Dolphins on Saturday that kept them alive in the tournament.

As per the CLT20 rules and guidelines, Hafeez can continue to play for now. If he is reported again, he will be suspended from bowling in the tournament and in any cricket organised by BCCI until his action is cleared. This however, has no implication on his international participation.

Lahore Lions take on Perth Scorchers on Tuesday with the hope of a big-margin victory that could see them outrun Chennai Super Kings in the race to the semis.
