The bowling actions of four bowlers have been reported for suspect actions after the first day of the Dhaka Premier Division Cricket League. Left-arm spinner Moinul Islam and offspinner Mustafizur Rahman of Gazi Group Cricketers, Abahani's left-arm spinner Amit Kumar, and Prime Doleshwar Sporting Club's left-arm spinner Rejaul Karim were reported.

Gazi Group's head coach Mohammad Salahuddin said he was notified of the report at the end of their shock 106-run win over Prime Bank Cricket Club in Mirpur on Friday. Moinul and Mustafizur had made their List A debuts in the match.

"The umpires gave a piece of paper to our manager, which said that [Mustafizur Rahman] Bashar and the left-armer Moinul have been reported. I spoke to the umpires later and they said some of their deliveries were suspect. But they can continue playing until the board tells us anything," Salahuddin told ESPNcricinfo.

It is also understood that Abahani will continue to use Amit until further notification.

Apart from informing the teams, the umpires submitted the report to the BCB's umpires committee, which is supposed to hand it over to the bowlers review group. However, the review group - tasked with handling reported bowlers - has not been formed yet.

Rejaul had been reported for a suspect action in 2006-07 too and was cleared to bowl in the subsequent season.
