ICC Clears Akila Dananjaya’s Bowling Action

Sri Lankan spinner Akila Dananjaya has been cleared from his suspicious bowling action by the International Cricket Council (ICC) after serving almost three years of suspension.

The right-arm bowler was initially suspended from bowling in November, 2018, before undergoing remedial work which allowed him to resume bowling earlier in 2019. He was banned from bowling in international cricket for 12 months because of illegal bowling action. His suspension was a result of the ICC’s automatic penalty for bowlers who twice failed an assessment inside a two-year period. However, the off-spinner was granted permission to bowl in domestic cricket conducted by Sri Lanka Cricket, with the consent of the board.
