West Indies off-spinners Marlon Samuels and Shane Shillingford have been reported with suspected illegal bowling actions during the second Test against India, which ended in Mumbai on Saturday.

According to an official press release by the ICC, Samuels and Shillingford were reported at the end of the second day's play on Friday by on-field umpires Richard Kettleborough and Nigel Llong, TV Umpire Vineet Kulkarni and Andy Pycroft of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees.

Pycroft handed over the copies of the reports to the West Indies team manager after the conclusion of the Test.

The umpires' reports have cited concerns over the two bowlers' bowling actions, with particular references to Samuels' "quicker deliveries" and Shillingford's "doosras".

The analysis of their ctions must take place within three weeks, and the reports must be submitted to the ICC within a further two weeks.

If the players are found to have bowled with an illegal action during the independent analysis then they will be suspended from bowling in international cricket.

Until the independent assessments are received, the players shall be permitted to continue bowling in international cricket.

Both the bowlers have previously been reported and suspended from bowling in international cricket after their bowling actions were found to be illegal. They were, however, allowed to resume bowling in international cricket after they underwent remedial work on their bowling actions and further testing.

Samuels was reported in February 2008 and resumed bowling in international cricket in September 2011, while Shillingford was reported in November 2010 and resumed bowling in June 2011.
