The Indian Premier League Suspect Bowling Action Committee has cleared Kolkata Knight Riders spinner Sunil Narine, the IPL said IN a statement ahead of KKR’s match against Sunrisers Hyderabad in Abu Dhabi on Sunday.

Narine was reported for “suspected illegal bowling action” during KKR’s match against Kings XI Punjab in Abu Dhabi on October 10. Following the report, Narine was placed on the Suspect Action Warning List.

After reviewing footage of Narine’s bowling action “with the naked eye”, the committee concluded “the elbow-bend appears to be within the range of permissible limits” and removed the West Indian from the warning list.

It noted: “Narine should reproduce the same action going forward in IPL 2020 matches as presented to the Committee in the video footage.”
