Sri Lankan pacer Shaminda Eranga suspended by ICC for illegal action
20 June 2016 Current Affairs: International Cricket Council (ICC) has suspended Sri Lanka’s fast bowler Shaminda Eranga from bowling on 19 June 2016. He was suspended after an assessment of his bowling action.

The assessment revealed that all deliveries exceeded the 15 degrees level of tolerance permitted under the regulations.

The test was performed on 6 June 20156 at the National Cricket Performance Centre in Loughborough, which is an ICC accredited testing centre.

Eranga, who has played 41 times for Sri Lanka across all three formats, was reported after the second Test against England at Chester-le-Street on 31 May 2016.

In accordance with Article 6.1 of the regulations, Eranga’s international suspension will also be recognised and enforced by all National Cricket Federations for domestic cricket events played in their own jurisdiction. But he can play domestic cricket in Sri Lanka, with the consent of the country's cricket board.
