Sri Lanka vs England: Shaminda Eranga's bowling action comes under review

Durham: Sri Lankan fast bowler Shaminda Eranga has been reported for a suspect bowling action during the side`s nine-wicket defeat against England at the Riverside Stadium in Chester-le-Street on Monday.

The match officials, who handed a report to the Sri Lanka team, cited doubts about the legality of Eranga`s deliveries, ESPNcricinfo reported.

The 29-year-old will now have to get his action tested at an ICC accredited centre within a duration of two weeks.

He, however, will be allowed to continue bowling until the results of the test are known.

The Test, which saw England take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series, was umpired by Aleem Dar and Sundaram Ravi, with Andy Pycroft as match referee.

Eranga, whose bowling action is found to be illegal for the first time, has not been much effective in the series against England so far as he scalped only one wicket in 47 overs he bowled.
