Warwickshire off-spinner Maurice Holmes has been reported to the England and Wales Cricket Board after concerns were raised about his bowling action.

Holmes has been reported by umpires twice in the last month but will be allowed to continue playing until the ECB has made a decision.

It is understood that his delivery of the "doosra", the off-spinner's googly, is the focus of the ECB's concern.

Holmes, 21, made his County Championship debut in early May.

He took his maiden first-class wicket against Lancashire in that match at Edgbaston.

He has also played in three CB40 games and six second XI matches.
