The ICC's crack-down on illegal bowling actions has continued, with Bangladesh spinner Sohag Gazi the fifth bowler in the past few weeks to be reported for chucking, this time during a tour to the West Indies.

The ICC's crack-down on illegal bowling actions has continued, with Bangladesh spinner Sohag Gazi the fifth bowler in the past few weeks to be reported for chucking, this time during a tour to the West Indies.

Gazi was reported after the second ODI in the Caribbean, and now has 21 days to undergo remedial testing. There are still a number of matches left in the tour though, including two Tests, and the West Indies don't have a facility for testing.

The ICC statement read: "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."

MEanhwile, Pakistan's Saeed Ajmal is in Brisbane undergoing remodeling, while Zimbabwe's Prosper Utseya was reported last week. Sri Lanka's Sachithra Senanayake recently spent time in Perth to work on his action, and is banned until new tests show he has fixed his action.
