Off spinner Harbhajan Singh has been reported for a suspect bowling action over his 'doosra' delivery after the second cricket Test between India and Pakistan at Kolkata, ICC confirmed in London.

The bowler was reported for suspected action by the on-field umpires Darrell Hair and Steve Bucknor, the third umpire Arani Jayaprakash and the Match Referee Chris Broad, an ICC release said.

"The report relates specifically to the bowler's action when delivering the 'doosra.' It was noticeable to the umpires and me that there was an apparent change in action when bowling this delivery between the first innings of the match, when no concerns were raised, and the second, which then prompted the report to be made," Broad said.
