Shohag's action reported

Sports Reporter

Bangladesh off-spinner Shohag Gazi has been reported for a suspect bowling action during his side's 177-run loss in the second ODI against West Indies in Grenada on Friday.

An ICC press release stated that the match officials' report cited concerns about the legality of the 23-year-old's bowling action for all deliveries.

Shohag's bowling action will now be scrutinised further under the ICC process relating to suspected bowling actions. He is required to undergo testing within 21 days, and, during this period, Shohag is permitted to continue bowling in international cricket until the results of the tests are known.

Shohag faced similar allegations back in 2012 when an umpire at the Shafi Darashah tournament in Bangalore reported him for his quicker delivery. He had to go through a few checks before being able to play first-class cricket again.
