Prosper Utseya, the Zimbabwe offspinner, has been reported for a suspect bowling action following the third ODI against South Africa in Bulawayo.

The match officials' report, according to an ICC release, "cited concerns regarding Utseya's arm ball and fast delivery, and concluded that the bowler's action needed to be tested." Utseya will need to undergo testing within 21 days, as per ICC regulations.

Utseya, who has played four Test matches, 156 ODIs and 29 T20s since his international debut in 2004, has never previously been reported for his action.

Utseya is the fourth bowler - and the fourth offspinner - to have been reported for a suspect action over the last few months. Sri Lanka's Sachithra Senanayake and New Zealand's Kane Williamson were reported and subsequently banned after being found to have illegal bowling actions. Pakistan's Saeed Ajmal, who was reported during the recent Test series against Sri Lanka, is due to have his action tested in Brisbane.
