Pakistan off-spinner reported for suspect bowling action

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES: Pakistan off-spinner Bilal Asif has been reported for suspect bowling action after his figures of 5-25 propelled Pakistan to a seven-wicket victory in the third one-day international against Zimbabwe.

The 30-year-old Asif also scored 38 runs in the decisive ODI as Pakistan clinched the series 2-1.

The International Cricket Council says Bilal will now undergo testing of his bowling action within the next two weeks, but he will still be allowed to compete.

Asif is the third Pakistani off-spinner to be reported for suspect bowling after Saeed Ajmal and Mohammad Hafeez.
