The International Cricket Council (ICC) yesterday confirmed that West Indies player Marlon Samuels has been reported for a suspected illegal bowling action.

Samuels was reported for one particular delivery by match officials, following the completion of the third Test match between South Africa and the West Indies in Durban on Saturday.

The report was made by on field umpires Simon Taufel and Aleem Dar, and third umpire Brian Jerling.

Match Referee Roshan Mahanama informed both the ICC and the West Indies team management of the report.

The report will be handled under the ICC\'s standard bowling review process.

Samuels will now undergo independent analysis of his action by a member of the ICC’s panel of human movement specialists.
