Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) secretary Nishantha Ranatunga has announced that off-spinner Sachithra Senanayake will be sent to the International Cricket Council (ICC) for intense coaching.
The decision comes after Senanayake was banned from bowling due to an illegal action.
“If there is anything to be corrected with his bowling action, we want to do it and get him to play as soon as possible,” Ranatunga told AFP. “We want to rectify any problem.”
Senanayake was reported for a suspicious bowling action on May 31 and underwent tests in Cardiff. The results indicated that he exceeded the 15 degree flex limit in all four of his deliveries.
