For the second time in the tournament, Rajasthan Royals pacer Amit Singh has been reported for a suspect bowling action after the Jaipur-based outfit's IPL match against the Chennai Super Kings at the De Beers Diamond Oval here.

On-field umpires Gary Baxter and Kumar Dharmasena reported the pacer for a second time, citing his suspect bowling action on certain deliveries on Saturday.

The matter has now been referred by the Indian Premier League to the team management of the Rajasthan Royals and the IPL's Technical Committee as per the Laws of Cricket that govern the game, the organisers said in a statement on Sunday.

On completion of the match, footage was obtained and re-examined by all the three match officials, including TV Umpire Amish Saheba, and it was decided that further action was necessary under the Laws of Cricket section 24/3 that governs the game.

Amit had earlier been reported by umpires Daryl Harper and K Hariharan after the Royals' match against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Thursday.

Amit is the second bowler, after teammate Kamran Khan, to be reported for a suspect action in the second IPL.
