Sri Lanka spinner Akila Dananjaya suspended for illegal action

Dananjaya took 10 wickets in the first two matches of the series, which England won 3-0, before being replaced for the third and final Test by Nishan Peiris.

Dananjaya was reported with a suspect bowling action during the first Test against England last month and underwent testing of his bowling action on November 23 at the National Cricket Centre in Brisbane, Australia.

Sri Lanka's off-spinner Akila Dananjaya was suspended from bowling in global matches with immediate effect after his delivery style proved to be illegal, the worldwide Cricket Council (ICC) said Monday.

The 25-year-old can apply for reassessment after correcting his bowling action in accordance to the permitted laws.

However, it was not enough to prevent Sri Lanka from losing by 57 runs. According to reports, Dananjaya's deliveries exceeded the 15-degree tolerance level.

Dananjaya's suspension will be also enforced by all national cricket federations for domestic matches, though he may be able to play domestically in Sri Lanka with the permission of Sri Lanka Cricket.

Dananjaya has played five Tests for Sri Lanka since making his debut against Bangladesh in February.
