West Indies spinner Sunil Narine was reported for a suspect action during the third ODI against Sri Lanka in Pallekele.

The match officials gave their report, in which said that they were concerned about whether Narine’s deliveries were legal, to the West Indies team management after the game. As a result, Narine now has 14 days to get his action tested at an International Cricket Council (ICC) accredited facility, but he will be allowed to continue bowling until the results of his test are released.

This is the first time that Narine has been reported, but he himself has had concerns about his action in the past as he withdrew from the tour of India in October last year and the 2015 World Cup.

Narine had trouble with his action when playing in theĀ 2014 edition of the Champions League Twenty20 (CLT20) as he was reported twice. He was also banned from bowling his off-breaks in this year’s Indian Premier League (IPL) before being cleared with a “final warning”.
