Sohag Gazi, the Bangladesh off-spinner has been reported for a suspect action. This was done by officials after the second One-Day International (ODI) between West Indies and Bangladesh at Grenada on Friday.

The ICC press release stated that Gazi now has to undergo the tests within 21 days and that the report was handed to Habibul Bashar, who is now the manager of the Bangladesh team in the Caribbean. Meanwhile, he can continue to play and bowl in international cricket till the results of those tests are released.

This year has seen numerous bowlers being called for a suspect action. Saeed Ajmal was one bowler who was called and missed out on the first ODI between Sri Lanka and Pakistan at Hambantota. Sachithra Senanayake and Kane Williamson have been banned after tests found their actions crossed the permissible limits.

ICC Press Release:

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 One-Day International (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.

Sohag’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, Sohag is permitted to continue bowling in international cricket until the results of the testing are known.
