Narine Is Back After Illegal Bowling Action

West Indies off-spinner, Sunil Narine has had his bowling action cleared by ICC, just two days before the start of the IPL Twenty/20 Cricket Tournament in India.

Narine has not bowled since November, having been reported while on International duty, but all his deliveries with a remodeled action have been found to be legal.

Narine has been a key player for his IPL Franchies, Kolkata Knight Riders, and their new coach, Jacques Kallis, had earlier admitted he did not know if the West Indian would be available. Narine has taken 74 wickets in four IPL Seasons and helped Kolkata Knight Riders to the Title in 2012 and 2014.

He was suspended in November, after being reported during a One Day International in Sri Lanka, and his last appearance came at the Bangladesh Premier League.

The ICC said that Narine’s retest took place on 28th March in Chennai, India. He is now free once again to play in International and Domestic Competitions.
