Dananjaya has been banned from bowling in international cricket for 12 months following an independent assessment of his action, icc-cricket reports.
ANALYSIS
The 25-year-old came under the scanner after the legality of his bowling action by match officials in the first Test against New Zealand in Galle from 14-18 August. He subsequently underwent the independent assessment in Chennai on 29 August, which revealed that he employed an illegal bowling action. Moreover, Dananjaya was originally suspended from bowling in December 2018. Following remedial work on his bowling action, he was reassessed and permitted to resume bowling in February 2019. However, Dananjaya will be entitled to approach the ICC for a re-assessment of his bowling action after the expiry of this one year.
