The International Cricket Council has informed Sri Lanka Cricket that the umpires officiating in the fourth ODI of the ongoing England tour, have reported that a number of deliveries bowled by Sri Lanka off-spinner Sachithra Senanayake were considered to be suspect.

Issuing a statement, the SLC notes that since Senanayake had, over the past two years, played many ICC tournaments and four earlier games in the current tour without any hint of suspicion, this comes as a surprise to SLC.

SLC adds that as the ICC has a procedure in place for situations like this, they have no option but to adhere to procedure.

According to this process, Sachchitra is not debarred from consideration for selection to the fifth ODI to be played at Edgbaston on Tuesday.

The chairman of the Sri Lankan selection committee has also confirmed that Sachithra Senanayake will play play Sunday’s game.
