Bangladesh off-spinner Sohag Gazi has been reported to the International Cricket Council (ICC) with a suspected illegal bowling action during his side's 177 run defeat to the West Indies in the second ODI 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 Gazi's bowling action for all deliveries.

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

The off-spinner 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.
