All-rounder Akila Dananjaya has been added to the Sri Lanka Squad which is going through the second-phase of training session at the Pallekele Stadium in Kandy. According to highly placed sources at Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC), the 26-year-old right-arm off-spinner has already reached the venue. 


“He is the 25th member of the training squad. He is the latest addition to the squad of 24,” the source told the Daily Mirror yesterday. “In fact, Akila has been included in the training squad at the request of the Head Coach, Mickey Arthur.”  


Last year, the International Cricket Council (ICC) banned Dananjaya from bowling in international matches for 12 months, after his bowling action was deemed to be illegal. 


“His suspension is coming to an end within two months and our coach wants to see him in action.” 
“He is a key member of our team for the ODIs’ and T20Is and therefore, he has been summoned to join the training squad,” the source further added. 


It is still not yet decided where he would be sent for the testing of his bowling action. Akila has so far played six Tests, 36 ODIs and 22 T20 Internationals. 


He joined the training squad after passing all the medical tests, which were mandatory.
