LONDON: Sri Lanka off-spinner Sachithra Senanayake has been reported for a suspected illegal bowling action, the International Cricket Council (ICC) confirmed on Monday.

Senanayake, who has twice recorded career-best figures in the ongoing Royal London series against England, was reported by umpires Ian Gould and Marais Erasmus at the end of his team´s victory at Lord´s on Saturday.

He will be free to bowl again in the fifth and final Royal London one-day international series at Edgbaston on Tuesday, but will face further scrutiny under ICC regulations.
