Pakistani off-spinner Saeed Ajmal has been reported with a suspected illegal bowling action during his side's seven-wicket loss to Sri Lanka at Galle International Stadium on Sunday in the first Test match of the two-match series.

The match officials' report, which was handed over to Pakistan team manager Moin Khan on Sunday, cited concerns over a number of deliveries that were considered to be suspect and concluded that the bowler's action needed to be tested.

Ajmal's bowling action will now be scrutinised further under the International Cricket Council (ICC) process relating to suspected illegal bowling actions reported in Tests, ODIs and T20Is.

Ajmal is required to undergo testing within 21 days, and, during this period, the off-spinner is permitted to continue bowling in international cricket until the results of the testing are known. (ANI)
