Akila Dananjaya gets one-year bowling ban

Sri Lankan off-spinner Akila Dananjaya was banned from bowling in international matches for a year after his bowling action was found to be illegal, the International Cricket Council (ICC) said Thursday. The spinner was subjected to an independent assessment of his bowling action after umpires questioned his style in the first Test against New Zealand in August, the ICC said. It recalled that he had been suspended in December after being reported by umpires during the first Test against England in November 2018, but was permitted to resume bowling in February following "remedial work on his action."
