Bangladesh's off-spinner Sohag Gazi has been reported with a suspected illegal bowling action during his side's 177 runs loss in the second ODI against the West Indies in Grenada on Friday.

The match officials' report, which was handed over to Bangladesh team manager Habibul Bashar on Saturday, cited concerns about the legality of the 23-year-old's bowling action for all deliveries. (Ajmal to be Tested for Suspect Bowling Action Monday)

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