CHESTER-LE-STREET (United Kingdom), May 31: Sri Lanka fast bowler Shaminda Eranga has been reported for a suspect bowling action, the International Cricket Council said today, adding to their woes after they lost the Test series to England.
Concerns about the 29-year-old�s action emerged during the second Test at the Riverside, where England beat Sri Lanka by nine wickets inside four days on Monday to go 2-0 up in the three-match series.
A statement from the ICC, cricket�s global governing body, said: �The match officials� report, which was handed over to the Sri Lanka team management, cited concerns about the legality of the 29-year-old�s bowling action.�
Eranga opened Sri Lanka�s bowling in the first innings at the Riverside, returning with figures of none for 100 in 27 overs during the hosts� 498 for nine declared.
The right-armer then bowled just one over in England�s second innings as they chased down a target of 79 for victory. � AFP
