IPL 2020: KKR's Sunil Narine Taken Off Suspect Action Warning List

IPL 2020: Sunil Narine cleared by suspect bowling action committee

Off-spinner Narine was reported for an alleged suspect action shortly after Kolkata's IPL victory over Kings XI Punjab on October 10 and another such report could have led to him being banned from bowling in the tournament.

It's very likely that Narine will feature in the next game for Kolkata Knight Riders which is against the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Following the report, Mr Narine was placed on the IPL Warning List. The committee reviewed the action and concluded after studying the footage that the "elbow bend" was within the permissible limit.

Both Narine and Knight Riders had expressed surprise after the bowler was put on the warning list by the IPL immediately after he played a match-winning role in thrilling two-run victory against Kings XI Punjab on October 10.

Half of the career Sunil Narine has been busy with rectifying his bowling action and once again, he had to undergo a bowling test after he was reported in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL).

The Knight Riders, unwilling to take any risk, left him out for a couple of matches while they requested the Suspect Bowling Action Committee to review his action.

KKR, the two-time IPL winners, had requested for an official assessment of Narine's bowling action following the development.

"The committee fastidiously reviewed all of the deliveries of motion footage despatched of Mr Narine with the bare eye and has come to the conclusion that the elbow-bend seems to be throughout the vary of permissible limits". KKR are on eight points while SRH was on six points after eight games each.

In 2015, Narine served suspension from bowling in global cricket after his action was declared illegal by the ICC. He was reported during the 2015 IPL as well and was eventually suspended from bowling in November that year.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) cleared his action in April 2016, but he had to pull out off the T20 World Cup in India that year. But has faced problems with the action and was once again reported in 2018 before last week's warning.
