Zimbabwe left-arm seamer Brian Vitori has been reported for a suspect action following the third T20 international against Bangladesh. Vitori will have to undergo a test on his action at an ICC-accredited centre within 14 days but can continue bowling in international cricket until the results are out.

The ICC said that the match officials' report had been handed over to the Zimbabwe team management after their 31-run victory in Khulna.

Vitori, 25, has played four Tests, 19 ODIs and 11 T20s for Zimbabwe after making his international debut in August 2011.

The ICC also confirmed that Netherlands seamer Ahsan Malik had been cleared to bowl in international cricket following remedial work on his action and a retest.

"Since being reported in July during last year's ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier, Ahsan had remodeled his bowling action prior to applying to have his action re-tested," the ICC said. "The result shows that the level of elbow extension measured for all deliveries bowled was now within the 15-degree level of tolerance permitted under the ICC regulations."
