Hasan Durham, Bermuda's left-arm spinner, has been reported for a potentially flawed action after the second ODI against Canada in Toronto, the ICC confirmed.

A biomechanics expert appointed by the ICC and the Bermuda Cricket Board (BCB) will submit a report on Durham's action in the next 21 days. The report will be submitted to the ICC who will send it to the BCB and until the BCB receives the report, Durham will be able to continue playing.

However, if Durham's action is found illegal he will be suspended from bowling in international matches and he would have to apply to the ICC for a re-assessment of his action to resume bowling.

Durham was referred to the first stage of the process of checking potentially flawed actions after his was assessed by the match officials. The report was made by Ian Gould and Roger Dill, the on-field umpires, Karran Bayney and Ruban Sivanadian, the third and fourth umpires, and the match referee Jeff Crowe.
