Dananjaya’s action cleared, spinner added to Sri Lanka ODI squad

Spinner Akila Dananjaya has returned to Sri Lanka’s squad for the five ODIs in South Africa after having his action cleared by the ICC. He was officially banned from bowling in international cricket in December after an independent biomechanics assessment found his flex beyond the permitted 15 degrees. Dhananjaya has been one of Sri Lanka’s main threats in limited-overs cricket in recent times, taking 28 ODI wickets at an average of 23 in 2018, and a further 27 wickets at 24.25 in Tests.
