New Zealand's Kane Williamson has had his bowling action reported following the second Test against the West Indies in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad.

He must now undergo independent analysis of his bowling action within 21 days after umpires Ian Gould, Richard Illingworth and Rod Tucker expressed concern with a number of deliveries they considered to be suspect.

Match referee Chris Broad handed a copy of the match officials' report to New Zealand team management following the end of the game, which the West Indies won by 10 wickets.

Wililamson, an occasional off-spinner, has taken 24 Test wickets, 23 One-Day International wickets and two Twenty20 International wickets.

This is the first time he has been reported for a suspected illegal bowling action.

He will be allowed to continue bowling in international cricket until the results of his analysis are produced.
