Sri Lanka’s Akila Dananjaya banned for year over illegal action

Sri Lanka spinner Akila Dananjaya has been banned from bowling for 12 months after an independent assessment of his action.

Dananjaya had previously been suspended in December 2018 before being allowed to return in February after remedial work on his action, but he was reported again in August during the first Test against New Zealand.
