Senanayake returns to domestic action
Sri Lanka spinner Sachithra Senanayake has returned to domestic action after being banned from international cricket with an illegal action, and is working towards a successful retesting session.
The spinner was reported during the tour to England earlier this year, and was subsequently banned. He is still allowed to play domestically though, and after remodelling has played three local games.
“We will carefully monitor his bowling during competitive matches and view the footage and see if further remedial work needs to be done,” Jerome Jayaratne, the head of Sri Lanka Cricket coaching, said.
“Once we are satisfied with Sachithra’s action we will send him for retesting to one of the three ICC testing centres at Cardiff, Brisbane or Chennai,” he added.
While this is good news for Sri Lanka’s World Cup hopes, other nations are not as fortunate. Pakistan’s Saeed Ajmal is still working on his action after being banned, while Zimbabwe’s Prosper Utseya and Bangladesh’s Sohag Gazi were banned this week.
