Umpires at the recently concluded Champions League Twenty20 in India have reported West Indies mystery off-spinner Sunil Narine for having a suspected bowling action.
The report, which relates to his faster delivery, was lodged by on-field umpires Anil Chaudhary and Chettithody Shamshauddin, along with third umpire Kumar Dharamsena, following Kolkata Knight Rider’s 36-run victory over Dolphin at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Hyderabad, India recently.
The Trinidad and Tobago player had picked up 13 wickets for the Indian Premier League franchise, KKR, who have played unbeaten in the group phase of the CLT 20 to qualify for the semi-finals.
A CLT20 media statement said that Narine would now be placed on a “warning list” but would be free to continue playing for KKR.
The statement also said that Narine could request an official assessment from the Bowling Action Committee of the Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) who are organizers of the tournament.
However, the media statement said if Narine received another report while on the warning list, he would be suspended from bowling.
