Akila Dananjaya reported for suspect bowling action

Akila Dananjaya, has played four Tests, 30 ODIs and 16 T20Is for Sri Lanka since his international debut in September 2012.

Sri Lanka off-spinner Akila Dananjaya has been reported with a suspect bowling action during the first Test against England, which the visitors won by 211 runs on Friday.


The match officials’ report, which was handed over to the Sri Lanka team management, cited concerns about the legality of the 25-year-old’s bowling action.

Dananjaya’s bowling action will now be scrutinised further under the ICC process relating to suspected illegal bowling actions reported in Tests, ODIs and T20Is.

He is required to undergo testing within 14 days and, during this period, Dananjaya is permitted to continue bowling in international cricket until the results of the testing are known.

The second Test between England and Sri Lanka will be starting off on 14th November (Wednesday) in Pallekelle.
