"After all video evidence of the match was taken into account, on-field umpires Rod Tucker and Kumar Dharmasena along with third umpire S. Ravi felt that there was a flex action in his elbow beyond the acceptable limit when bowling during the match," a release stated.

Before Yadav, his team-mate Sunil Narine,, Dolphins' Prenelan Subrayen and Adnan Rasool and Mohammed Hafeez of Lahore Lions were also reported for illegal action. Under the CLT20 Suspected Illegal Bowling Action policy, Yadav may request an Official Assessment from the BCCI Suspect Bowling Action Committee.
