DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Bangladesh fast bowler Al-Amin Hossain has been reported for a suspect bowling action after West Indies won the first test by 10 wickets on Tuesday.

The International Cricket Council said Wednesday that match officials cited concerns about the legality of the 24-year-old Al-Amin’s bowling action and handed a report to Bangladesh team manager Habibul Bashar.

Al-Amin will now undergo tests on his bowling action over the next three weeks but he’s allowed to continue bowling in international cricket until the results come back.

Al-Amin has picked up only three wickets in four test matches since making his debut against New Zealand last year.

On Tuesday ICC suspended Pakistan off-spinner Saeed Ajmal after an analysis of his bowling action revealed all his deliveries exceeded the 15-degree level of tolerance.
