" 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. "
Dubai, Aug 11 - Pakistan off-spinner Saeed Ajmal has been reported for a suspected illegal bowling action during his side's seven-wicket loss in the first cricket Test against Sri Lanka at Galle International Stadium Sunday.

The off-spinner must undergo testing within 21 days, an ICC media release said Monday.

The match officials' report, which was handed over to Pakistan team manager Moin Khan 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.

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.
