Saeed Ajmal reported for suspect action
Recent Match Played: Bangladesh won by 7 wickets

Galle, Aug 11: Pakistan offspinner Saeed Ajmal has been reported with a suspected illegal bowling action during his side's seven-wicket loss in the first Test match against Sri Lanka at Galle International Stadium on Sunday (August 10).

The match officials' report, which was handed over to Pakistan team manager Moin Khan on Sunday, cited concerns over a number of deliveries that were considered to be suspect and concluded that the bowler's action needed to be tested, ICC said in a media release today.

Ajmal's bowling action will now be scrutinised further under the ICC process relating to suspected illegal bowling actions reported in Tests, ODIs and T20Is.

He is required to undergo testing within 21 days, and, during this period, Ajmal is permitted to continue bowling in international cricket until the results of the testing are known.
