The International Cricket Council (ICC) announced on Wednesday that Indian cricketer Shikhar Dhawan was reported with a suspect bowling action during the recently concluded fourth Test against South Africa, which the host won by 337 runs in New Delhi on Monday.

According to the official ICC website, the report filed by the match officials, which was handed over to the Indian team management, expressed concerns about the legality of Dhawan’s off-spin deliveries.

The 30-year old cricketer’s bowling action will now be scrutinised further under the ICC process relating to suspected illegal bowling actions reported in Tests, ODIs and T20Is.

ICC also announced that he will have to undergo testing within 14 days, and, during this period, Dhawan is permitted to continue bowling in international cricket until the results of the testing are known.
