Kraigg Brathwaite has been reported for a suspect bowling action following the first Test against England at Edgbaston.

Brathwaite, the opening batsman who bowls part-time offspin, sent down six overs for six runs in England's innings. He will now be required to undergo testing within 14 days but is allowed to continue to bowl in international cricket until the results are known.

He has 12 wickets in Test cricket including a haul of 6 for 29 against Sri Lanka in Colombo although he is far more important to West Indies for his adhesiveness with the bat - he is the only member of the current squad with more than 2000 Test runs. He made a duck in the first innings at Edgbaston but scored 40 in the second before being trapped lbw by Moeen Ali.
