The assessment revealed that his deliveries exceeded the 15 degrees level of tolerance permitted under the regulations, the ICC said.

"In accordance with Article 11.1 of the ICC Regulations For The Review of Bowlers Reported with Suspect Illegal Bowling Actions, Dananjaya's international suspension will also be recognized and enforced by all National Cricket Federations for domestic cricket events played in their own jurisdiction.," the ICC said in a release

Dananjaya was reported with a suspect bowling action during the first Test against England, which the visitors won by 211 runs in Galle and had undergone an independent assessment of his bowling action on 23 November 2018 at the National Cricket Centre, Brisbane.

Dananjaya can apply for a re-assessment after modifying his bowling action in accordance with clause 4.5 of the Regulations.
