Narine reported for suspect bowling action again

MUMBAI: West Indies star spinner Sunil Narine has been reported for suspect bowling action again following the game against Sunrisers Hyderabad on April 22 in Visakhapatnam.

He is currently representing defending champions Kolkata Knight Riders in Indian Premier League (IPL) where he was reported once again.

An IPL release said that Narine “will still be eligible to bowl in forthcoming IPL matches” and that he “may request a biomechanical analysis of the deliveries in question at the ICC and BCCI accredited testing facility, the Sri Ramachandra Arthroscopy and Sports Science Centre in Chennai.”

Narine was first reported for a suspect action during the Champions League Twenty20 in October 2014, following Knight Riders’ group game against Dolphins.

He was allowed to play their next game, the semi-final against Hobart Hurricanes, but all 24 deliveries of his spell were called suspect by the on-field umpires, meaning he was banned from bowling in the final, against Chennai Super Kings.

Consequently, Narine skipped West Indies’ tour of India later that month, and informed the WICB about handling the rehabilitation process on his own.

Despite not having played any competitive cricket since then, Narine was surprisingly picked by Clive Lloyd’s selection panel in West Indies’ World Cup squad on January 11 and two weeks later, he clocked his best bowling performance in List-A cricket, picking 6 for 9 to help Trinidad & Tobago to the NAGICO 50-over title.
