Australia v Sri Lanka - ODI Game 3
Shaminda Eranga

The Sri Lankan fast bowler made a promising start to his career when he became the only bowler in the history to pick up wickets in his first over in all 3 formats of the game. He could swing the ball at pace that made him a useful pick for the side across formats.

But on Sri Lanka's tour to England in 2016, he was reported for having an illegal action after the second Test at Chester-le-Street and was suspended from bowling in international cricket following an independent assessment which found his bowling action to be illegal.

But lately, his action has been cleared by the ICC after his remodelled action was tested again in Chennai where his standard deliveries were found to be within the 15-degree level of tolerance.
