The Pakistan women's cricketer, Javeria Wadood, has been suspended from bowling in international cricket, following an independent test into her bowling action.

The International Cricket Council has confirmed that an independent test found the off-spinner's bowling action to be illegal.

The amount of elbow extension in Wadood's action wasn't within the 15-degree level of tolerance.

Wadood has the right to appeal to the Bowling Review Group within 14 days.
