Zimbabwe's Prosper Utseya reported for suspected bowling action

Dubai: Zimbabwe all-rounder Prosper Utseya has been reported with a suspected illegal bowling action during his side's seven-wicket loss in the third and final ODI against South Africa in Bulawayo.

The match officials' report, which was handed over to Zimbabwe team manager Stanley Chioza on Thursday after the match, cited concerns regarding Utseya's arm ball and fast delivery.

The report concluded that the bowler's action needed to be tested.

Utseya's bowling action will now be scrutinised further under the ICC process relating to suspected illegal bowling actions reported in Tests, ODIs and T20Is.

He is required to undergo testing within 21 days, and, during this period, Utseya is permitted to continue bowling in international cricket until the results of the testing are known.
