Sri Lanka off-spinner Sachithra Senanayake will have his bowling action tested in Cardiff after it was reported by the umpires during the fourth ODI against England at Lord’s.

Senanayake initially returned back to Sri Lanka, but Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) have decided to send him to Cardiff Metropolitan University for a biomechanical test.

“Senanayake will go in for ICC scrutiny at the Cardiff Metropolitan University within the next few days,” SLC CEO Ashley de Silva told the Sunday Times. “We have notified the ICC of our option and they in turn will reserve a date for Senanayake to attend the sessions.”

During the test, Senanayake will have to bowl every single one of the deliveries in his arsenal. In order to pass, he has to ensure that his elbow does not exceed the 15-degree flex limit.
