    Just in: Senanayake banned from bowling in international cricket after testing finds his action to be illegal

    Credit to the umpires, a big call but the right one. Hardly a surprise to anyone who has watched the bloke and puts pay to some rather embarrassing conspiracy theory type thinking.

    Hopefully the positive we get out of this is more faith in the current testing and less calling out of people who have actually undergone testing and were cleared.

    Yeah, agreed. Also hope this puts pay to the idea that voluntary getting yourself tested (thats a weird sentence to write on a cricket forum) doesn't mean very much. So much less scrutiny obviously compared to an official one.

    Gee - all four delivery types exceeded the limit, interesting given the SL camp reckoned his action hadn't changed since he was cleared in 2011 - clearly not.

    Big dent to our ODI plans going forward, particularly with the WC in mind, he's been our best LO spinner for the last year by some distance, good to see that testing works though

    He was tested after complaints by umpires though, and why would it not mean much? The tests are the same are they not?

    Nah, he'll do some remedial work and will get re-tested again and will probably be back in the side within a year, might not have all his variations and might not be as effective though

    We were regularly told that he was tested voluntarily numerous times though and had passed? How is that the case if his action hasn't changed?

    Any precedent to that? Can't recall anyone having all their deliveries deemed illegal..

    To my knowledge he was tested once in 2011 after complaints by umpires during an 'A' tour of England, he went back and did some remedial work and then got himself tested in Perth at the request of SLC (before he played any international cricket), I assume his action has simply deteriorated over that time. Certainly plausible - same thing presumably happened to Shillingford

    No but he's been cleared before in testing and had everybody at SLC convinced that his action hadn't changed so I don't see why it's impossible - not that I can think of an example of someone else who's done it though tbh

    Isn't Shillingford allowed back but not to bowl his doosra, presume that is what Maximas means as Shillingford looks rubbish now without it.

    He has been cleared before, and it was always a joke. Not sure why people won't be calling out filthy actions now, if they are indeed filthy actions.
