Norway off-spinner Zeeshan Siddiqui and Vanuatu pace bowler Niko Unavalu have been reported with suspected illegal bowling actions during the ICC World Cricket League Division 6 match played between the teams in West Mersea, Essex on Tuesday.

The match officials’ reports, which have been handed over to the respective team management, cited concerns about the legality of both players' bowling actions.

Siddiqui and Unavalu’s bowling actions will now be scrutinised further under the ICC process outlined in Article 3 of the ICC Regulations for the Review of Bowlers Reported with Suspected Illegal Bowling Actions (a copy of which can be found here).‎

An Expert Panel appointed under the ICC Regulations will review match footage of the bowling actions of both players. The panel will then determine if the bowling actions are legal or illegal. Until the results are known, both Siddiqui and Unavalu are permitted to continue bowling in international cricket.

Norway will next face Cayman Islands on Thursday, while Vanuatu’s next game is scheduled for Friday, opposition to be confirmed.
