Sri Lankan seamer Shamindra Eranga has been cleared to resume bowling by the International Cricket Council following re-assessment of his bowling action.

The fast bowler was initially reported after the second Test against England at Chester-le-Street on 31 May 2016 and was suspended following an independent assessment which found his bowling action to be illegal.

Eranga underwent a re-assessment of his bowling action at the ICC accredited testing centre in Chennai with the assessment concluding 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 the 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.

Eranga who made his Test debut in 2011 against Australia has taken 57 wickets in 19 matches. In ODIs he has taken 21 wickets in 19 matches.

    ICC aristocracy is doubting only Sri Lankan players' bowling actions, like Murali, Eranga. What compensation there by ICC for Eranga, who lost playing chance for one year?
