Narine reported for bowling action after CSK game


Sunil Narine helped Kolkata Knight Riders to clinch a thriller by defending 14 runs in the last over against Chennai Super Kings.

I will play anywhere in the world where KKR has a team, says Narine
West Indies off-spinner Sunil Narine has been a terrific death bowler over the years even in the super overs in the shortest format of the game. He did it again on Saturday when Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) needed to defend 14 runs in the last over. He picked up one wicket and conceded only 12 runs.

However, the Windies spinner was hit with a bad news after the end of the game as he has been reported for suspect bowling action for the fourth time. The report was made by the on-field umpires according to the IPL’s Suspected Illegal Bowling Action Policy.

Narine has been only given a warning and he can continue bowling in the tournament. He will be suspended from bowling in the tournament if he’s reported once more. He will then have to get his action cleared by the BCCI Suspect Bowling Action Committee to bowl again in the tournament.

The 32-year old has been struggling with his bowling action since the start of this career. He also missed the 2015 World Cup after he was reported twice in the Champions League 2014 tournament. Later, he was reported during the 2015 IPL as well and was eventually suspended from bowling in November that year.

Despite, ICC cleared his action in April 2016, he could not manage to play the T20 World Cup in India. The last time he was reported before Saturday was in 2018 during the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
