July 12, Colombo: Sri Lanka offspinner Sachithra Senanayake has been banned from bowling in international cricket, effective immediately, after his bowling action was found to be illegal after tests conduct to assess the arm action in Cardiff.

Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) said in a release today that it has received the ICC Bowling Action Legality Assessment Report pertaining to Sachithra Senanayake. It was conducted by the Cardiff Metropolitan University - Cardiff School of Sport in England.

Senanayake was reported for a suspect action during Sri Lanka's fourth ODI against England at Lord's on May 31 and the testing was conducted last month in Cardiff.

The Standard ICC Illegal Action Testing Protocol was used to assess the degree of elbow extension from the point of upper arm horizontal to ball release within the bowling action.

It was found that the 15-degree elbow extension threshold was exceeded in the four deliveries considered to be suspect in the 4th ODI played at Lords.

The report has concluded that Sachithra bowled with an illegal bowling action and consequently he is banned from bowling, effective immediately, the SLC said.

SLC said the matter will be referred to the SLC Cricket Committee for their recommendation.
