Kane Williamson has been reported for a suspected illegal bowling action during New Zealand's 10-wicket second test loss to the West Indies in Trinidad.

The off-spinner was reported at the end of the match by umpires Ian Gould, Richard Illingworth and Rod Tucker and match referee Chris Broad.

Broad handed over the copy of the report to New Zealand team manager Mike Sandle yesterday.

The document cited concerns over a number of deliveries they considered to be suspect. They believe his action needs to be tested.

Williamson's bowling action will now be scrutinised by the ICC. He's required to undergo testing within 21 days but is permitted to continue bowling in international cricket until the results are known.
