Williamson, Dananjaya reported for suspect bowling action

DUBAI: New Zealand captain Kane Williamson and Sri Lanka’s Akila Dananjaya have been reported for suspect bowling action after the first Test between the two sides in Galle, the International Cricket Council (ICC) said on Tuesday. Both the players are right-arm off-break spinners and their bowling actions came under scrutiny during the opening Test which ended on Sunday. Williamson and Dananjaya will now undergo testing within 14 days from the reporting date (August 18), and, during this period both will be permitted to continue bowling in international cricket until the results of the testing are known. Williamson, 29, bowled just three overs during the second innings of the game which Sri Lanka won by six wickets. The 25-year-old Dananjaya, on the other hand, is a budding all-rounder and has played just six Tests for Sri Lanka so far, claiming 33 wickets at an impressive average of 24.
