Shaminda Eranga banned from bowling in international matches

Sri Lanka’s Shaminda Eranga has been banned from bowling in international cricket after his action was reported during the second Test against England.

The 29-year-old was tested on June 6 at the National Cricket Performance Centre in Loughborough and his action was found to be illegal.

Eranga has played 41 times across all formats for Sri Lanka and he is still able to play domestic cricket in Sri Lanka, with the consent of the country’s cricket board. He can apply for a reassessment of his action once it has been modified.

An ICC statement said: “The assessment revealed that all deliveries exceeded the 15 degrees level of tolerance permitted under the regulations.”

Sri Lanka’s ODI series with England begins on Tuesday.
