New Delhi - Bangladesh bowlers Arafat Sunny and Taskin Ahmed have been reported for suspect bowling actions during their side's opening match in the World Twenty20, the International Cricket Council (ICC) said Thursday.

Off-spinner Sunny, 29, and paceman Ahmed, 20, turned out for Bangladesh in a qualifying match against the Netherlands in Dharamsala on Wednesday. Bangladesh won the match by eight runs.

The bowlers' action would now be scrutinised further by the ICC under its process relating to suspected illegal bowling action.

"The ICC is working with the Bangladesh cricket team management to confirm times for the independent testing of both bowlers at the ICC-accredited testing centre in Chennai," the game's world governing body said in a statement.

Both players will be allowed to continue playing until the results of the tests are declared.

The ICC launched a crackdown against suspect actions in 2014, which resulted in several leading bowlers being reported.

Other bowlers who have been up hauled up include Pakistan's Saeed Ajmal and Mohammad Hafeez, Bangladesh's Sohag Gazi, New Zealand's Kane Williamson, Sri Lanka's Sachithra Senanayake and Tharindu Kaushal.
