The 25-year old off spinner was reported of an illegal bowling action during the home Test series against England last November and later was proven after being tested in the National Cricket Centre in Brisbane.

Dananjaya who has been Sri Lanka’s go-to spinner in limited overs cricket during the recent past was a huge loss for the team since being banned, and has been named in the ODI squad to face South Africa this month immediately after being cleared.
