Tharindu Kaushal reported for suspect bowling action

Sri Lanka off-spinner Tharindu Kaushal has been reported with a suspected illegal bowling action during the third Test against India, which concluded at the Singhalese Sports Club in Colombo on Tuesday.

The match officials’ report, which was handed over to the Sri Lanka management, cited concerns about the legality of the 22-year-old’s bowling action.

Kaushal’s bowling action will now be scrutinised further under the ICC process relating to suspected illegal bowling actions reported in Tests, ODIs and T20Is.

He is required to undergo testing within 14 days, and, during this period, Kaushal is permitted to continue bowling in international cricket until the results of the testing are known.

Asia Cup 2014: Sri Lanka elect to bowl against India

Sri Lanka won the toss and decided to field first against India in the league match of the Asia Cup 2014 at Khan Shaheb Osman Ali Stadium, Fatullah.

Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews said, “The wicket looks pretty slow today so we want to bowl first. We have three spinners today – Ajantha Mendis comes in for Lakmal.

“We are comfortable with an extra spinner and the dew factor will come in later on so we thought of bowling first.”

India captain Virat Kohli said, “We would have liked to bowl first too, but we have a strong batting line-up to chase.

“We have brought in Stuart Binny for Varun Aaron. We saw yesterday how the Afghanistan medium-fast bowlers were bowling well and stump to stump so we thought of bringing in a medium-pacer.”

West Indies won the toss and elected to bat first against the hosts Sri Lanka.

West Indies have retained the same playing eleven while Sri Lanka have replaced Rangana Herath with Akila Dananjaya.

Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene said, “We would have liked to bat first too but maybe it is a good toss to lose in the big game. Akila is in for Rangana Herath. It was a tough call. We are very excited.”

West Indies captain Darren Sammy said, “We are going to bat first. We bat well and it gives us a good chance here.

“The pitch is similar to the one we played against Australia. We are playing the same team.

“It is Dwayne Bravo’s birthday today and I would like to wish him now. Hopefully we come out on top.”

Ajantha Mendis has also made it to the squad.

Kumar Sangakkara and Nuwan Kulasekara were included in the 15-man squad subject to their recovery from existing injuries.

SLPL 2012 Live Streaming

You can watch live streaming of Sri Lanka Premier League (SLPL) 2012 online. All the 24 matches of the SLPL 2012 will streamed on official SLPL YouTube channel.

The move to stream the tournament on Youtube had been initiated by Somerset Entertainment Ventures, who are handling the marketing and operations of the SLPL.

“It was an idea that was brought to us, and we approved it because it gives the tournament the benefit of reaching more cricket fans around the world,” said SLC president Upali Dharmadasa.

ESPN Star Sports (ESS) hold the broadcast rights to the SLPL and will be screening the tournament in Sri Lanka, India, Bangladesh and Pakistan, as well as in a host of other South and South East Asian countries.

ESS already has the rights to existing T20 leagues from Australia (Big Bash League), England (Pro T20), Bangladesh (Bangladesh Premier League), CLT20 and ICC WT20.

The IPL, the most-watched T20 format, however, is with Multi Screen Media (earlier known as Sony Entertainment Television India).

ESS MD Peter Hutton said, “We are delighted to be able to telecast the live matches of the SLPL in India and throughout the region.

“It is an excellent addition to Star Cricket’s remarkable catalogue of content in the next year, headlined by India’s home series against Pakistan, England and New Zealand, the ICC World T20, the Champions League T20 and the ICC Champions trophy. We look to further growing our live cricket content.”

The SLPL will feature 42 international players participating from seven countries including Australia, Bangladesh, Pakistan, South Africa and West Indies.

Indian players won’t participate in SLPL following Indian cricket board’s decision not to allow its players to take part in the league.
