ICC examines Shane Shillingford action

Shane Shillingford
Shillingford took five wickets in the drawn first Test against Sri Lanka

West Indies spinner Shane Shillingford has been reported to the ICC for a suspected illegal bowling action during the first Test against Sri Lanka.

Shillingford was reported by on-field umpires Richard Kettlebrough and Steve Davis, as well as TV umpire Asad Rauf and fourth umpire Tyron Wijewardene.

The 27-year-old must now undergo tests within the next 21 days.

Should his action be found to be illegal, he will be suspended until sufficient adjustments have been made.

The off-spinner will be available for the second Test which starts in Colombo on 23 November as any possible ban from international cricket would not come into place until the West Indies Cricket Board receives a report of the assessment.

Shillingford, who took 4-123 and 1-79 in the drawn match in Galle, was reported due to a straightening of the arm during some deliveries.
