Al-Amin Hossain, the Bangladesh fast-bowler, has been reported for a suspect action. Hossain was reported during the first Test between West Indies and Bangladesh at St Vincent, where the tourists were beaten by 10 wickets. This comes within 24 hours of Saeed Ajmal, the Pakistan off-spinner being suspended from bowling in international cricket, after the tests found that his action breached the permissible limit of 15 degrees.

The ICC press release stated, “The match officials’ report, which was handed over to Bangladesh team manager Habibul Bashar after the Test concluded on Tuesday, cited concerns about the legality of the 24-year-old’s bowling action.”

Hossain now has to undergo the testing within 21 days and is meanwhile allowed to bowl in international cricket. Earlier on this tour, Hossain’s teammate, Sohag Gazi was reported for a suspect action.
