Pakistan off-spinner Saeed Ajmal, the world's top-ranked bowler in One-day cricket, has been reported for a suspect action for the second time in his career, the world governing body said on Monday.
Match officials at the just-ended first Test between Sri Lanka and Pakistan in Galle "cited concerns over a number of deliveries that were considered to be suspect and concluded that the bowler's action needed to be tested", the International Cricket Council said in a statement.
As per ICC regulations, Ajmal will have to undergo tests of his action within 21 days, but is allowed to play on until the results of the test are known, the statement added.
Ajmal claimed five wickets in Sri Lanka's first innings. The hosts won the game by seven wickets on Sunday to take a 1-0 lead in the two-match series. The second Test starts on Thursday in Colombo.
"This has come as a surprise to us," Pakistan manager Moin Khan said in Colombo.
"But there is no panic. We support him and he will play in the next Test."
The 36-year-old Ajmal has taken 174 wickets in 34 Tests and 182 wickets in 110 ODIs since he made his international debut in 2008.
He was previously reported in April 2009 but was cleared to play after testing.
