Kolkata Knight Riders’ all-rounder Sunil Narine has been cleared of suspect bowling action by the Indian Premier League’s Suspect Bowling Action Committee.
Narine was reported for a suspected illegal bowling action during his team’s Dream11 Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 match against Kings XI Punjab at Abu Dhabi on October 10.
Narine was placed on the IPL Warning List after that.
KKR had requested for an official assessment of Narine’s bowling action by the IPL Suspect Bowling Action Committee. The team had submitted action footage in slow motion with back and side angles.
The committee carefully reviewed all the deliveries of action footage of Narine with the naked eye and has come to the conclusion that the elbow-bend appears to be within the range of permissible limits, IPL has started in a Press release.
The committee also noted that Narine should reproduce the same action going forward in the IPL 2020 matches as presented to the committee in the video footage.
Narine has now been removed from the IPL suspect action warning List.
