IPL 2020 KKR Spinner Sunil Narine Cleared By IPLs Suspect Bowling Action Committee

The clearance comes right after a week when Narine was reported with a suspected illegal bowling action after he had played a vital role his team's two-run win over Kings XI Punjab on October 10.

In the match played against Kings XI Punjab last week, there was a complaint of suspicious bowling action against Sunil Narine.

Because of Covid-19, the BCCI waived off a requirement for 3D biomechanical test, usually a necessity with the official assessment. Narine's name has been taken off the suspect action warning list and he is now cleared to bowl in the tournament, as per a statement released by the IPL.

This is not the first time that the West Indian has been reported and subsequently cleared for an illegal action.

Interestingly, while the board mentioned that Narine has been cleared, it did not mention who all comprised the committee. Following the report, Mr Narine was placed on the IPL Warning List.

The committee monitored Narine's action from the back and side angles and concluded that his elbow-bend appeared to be within the range of permissible limits. In what seemed like a precautionary move, the franchise rested Narine, who is understood to have worked with his personal spin coach Carl Crowe in rectifying his action for the type of delivery that was reported. However, the committee added that Narine should continue with the same action as the one submitted for review.

KKR requested for an official assessment of Narine's action from the specific committee, submitting action footage in slow motion with back and side angles.

Narine has had problems with his action since 2014. The spinner had even missed the 2015 World Cup to work on his bowling action. He returned to IPL 2015 but was once again reported for the suspect action and eventually suspended from bowling in November later that year.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) cleared his action in April 2016, but he had to pull out off the T20 World Cup in India that year. In March 2018, while playing in Pakistan Super League, there were complaints about Naren's bowling action.
