·         He can continue to bowl his other two variations, the knuckle ball and the quicker straight ball

·      Narine was reported twice during the Champions League T20 last year and was banned from bowling in the final. He sat out of West Indies’ truncated tour of India and the subsequent World Cup.

In another setback for Sunil Narine, the West Indies player has been barred from bowling off-spinners in the IPL. Kolkata Knight Riders’ ace spinner Narine underwent a biomechanical analysis in Chennai after being reported for a suspect action again during the IPL tie against Sunrisers Hyderabad in Visakhapatnam on April 22.

After reviewing the footage of the game and analysis in Chennai, the BCCI has decided to ban his off-spinners. “Following the provisions of the IPL Suspected Illegal Bowling Action Policy, the committee has concluded that Narine’s bowling action for his off-spinner, contravenes Law 24.2 (as read with Law 24.3) and therefore the player is now banned from bowling the off-spinner in matches organised by the BCCI, including the IPL. He may, however, continue to bowl his other deliveries (the knuckle ball and the quicker straight ball),” the BCCI said in a statement.

The statement further read: “If Narine were to again bowl the off-spinner in this season’s IPL, the on-field umpires would apply Law 24.2 and call “No ball” and, at the end of the match, would issue a further report. “Pursuant to clause 3.4 of the IPL Suspected Illegal Bowling Action Policy, the player would in such circumstances be automatically suspended from bowling.” Though he was eligible to play, Knight Riders did not pick him after the match in Visakhapatnam.

“Narine may undergo a course of bowling rehabilitation and take corrective measures to ensure that his action does not contravene Law 24 and may then request a further Official Assessment by the Committee,” said the BCCI
