Marlon Samuels: West Indies off-spinner reported for bowling action

West Indies all-rounder Marlon Samuels has been reported for bowling with a suspect action for the third time in his career.

The part-time off-spinner was cited after his side's first-Test defeat by Sri Lanka in Galle on Saturday.

The 34-year-old Jamaican will now need to have testing within 14 days.

Samuels was suspended from bowling in 2008 as a result of his action and has been banned from bowling quicker deliveries since 2013.

The latter ban came as a result of him being reported to the International Cricket Council (ICC) during a Test in India, but this did not preclude him from bowling his standard off-break deliveries.

After his original ban in February 2008, he continued to play as a specialist batsman but did not resume bowling in internationals until September 2011, having served an unrelated two-year suspension from cricket between May 2008 and May 2010 for passing information to a bookmaker.
