The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Tuesday confirmed that the bowling action of Sri Lanka?s Shaminda Eranga has been found to be legal, and the player can now resume bowling in international cricket.

Eranga underwent a re-assessment of his bowling action at the ICC accredited testing centre in Chennai. The assessment concluded that the amount of elbow extension in his standard deliveries was within the 15-degree level of tolerance permitted under the ICC regulations for the review of bowlers reported with suspected illegal bowling actions.

The umpires are still at liberty to report Eranga in future if they believe he is displaying a suspect action or that he is not reproducing the action that has been declared legal during this assessment. To assist the umpires in this respect, they have been provided with images and video footage of the bowler?s legal bowling action.

The fast bowler was initially reported after the second Test against England at Chester-le-Street on May 31 last year and was suspended following an independent assessment which found his bowling action to be illegal.
