Colombo: Sri Lanka Cricket said on Thursday it will allow suspended off-spin bowler Sachithra Senanayake to play domestic cricket as he is making good progress in remedying his bowling action.

The sport's governing body said in a statement that Senanayake had worked with some experts in University of Western Australia and had made "tremendous improvement" and continues training with his coaches.

In the meantime Sri Lanka Cricket will allow him to play in the local mercantile cricket tournament starting next month as per International Cricket Council guidelines, a significant step for the bowler to return to the game.
