Sri Lanka offspinner Tharindu Kaushal has been reported for a suspect illegal bowling action following the third Test against India that ended at the SSC in Colombo on Tuesday, September 1.

Twenty-two-year-old Kaushal, will have to undergo a test on his action at an ICC-accredited facility within 14 days but will be able to continue to bowl in international cricket until the results are out. Kaushal has played six tests and one ODI for Sri Lanka, having made his international debut in December 2014.

Kaushal took 13 wickets in the three Tests against India, averaging 38.15 at a strike rate of 62.50, and is considered the frontrunner to be Sri Lanka’s leading spinner once Rangana Herath retires.

The last Sri Lanka bowler to be reported for a suspect action in international cricket was Sachithra Senanayake, during the 2014 tour of England.
