Cape Town - A member of the Proteas coaching staff is being investigated by Indian police for possible fraud.

According to Beeld, Prasanna Agoram, the team's performance analyst, was questioned by police in Bangalore on Monday regarding theft of intellectual property.

It relates to the latest software programme which the Proteas use to prepare for games.

Agoram, 38, has reportedly been released on a warning but has been unable to join the Proteas in New Zealand because Indian police still have his passport.

Agoram, who has been with the Proteas since 2010, said the charge relates to his Mr. Cricket software programme. The programme analyses opponents' batting and bowling as well as the Proteas' strengths and weaknesses.

Agoram said the allegations against him are completely unfounded.

Altaaf Kazi, Cricket South Africa's media manager, said they are aware of the allegations against Agoram, but are still waiting for clarity on the matter and cannot make a decision regarding his future with the Proteas.

The Proteas are currently in New Zealand where they will play three ODIs against the hosts followed by three T20s and five ODIs against Australia.
