All three players are required to submit to a Home Board Analysis of their bowling action and their Home Boards must provide the ICC with a written report of the outcome of the analysis within seven days.
Throughout the period of the assessment, the players are permitted to continue bowling in international cricket. During this period, should further reports be made against any of the players, the reports will have no consequence.
