Off-spinner Sachithra Senanayake has completed 10 days of remedial work on his bowling action in Perth.

The spinner was reported for bowling with a suspected illegal action during Sri Lanka's tour of England in June.

He was then banned from bowling after independent analysis of his action was carried out in Cardiff and submitted to the International Cricket Council (ICC).

Subsequently, he has spent 10 days at the University of Western Australia in Perth working with Darryl Foster, to concentrate on remodelling his action.

The next step for him will be to undergo another independent analysis of his action which Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) hope will clear him for a return to action.

"SLC will be presenting Sachithra to the ICC accredited Cardiff University for clearance testing subjected to the pending report from Perth," they confirmed.

"This report is expected to reach SLC within the next fortnight."

He has played one Test, 35 One-Day Internationals and 17 Twenty20 Internationals since making his international debut in 2012.
