IPL 2020| KKR's Sunil Narine cleared by IPL’s Suspect Bowling Action Committee
Kolkata Knight Riders star all-rounder Sunil Narine is available for selection in the playing XI for the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday. The Trinidadian spinner who was out of the playing XI in KKR’s last two encounters after a reported suspected bowling action, has now been cleared by the IPL’s Suspect Bowling Action Committee, after footage of revised bowling action was submitted to the committee.
Sunil Narine, in his last outing for KKR displayed excellent bowling performance against the Kings XI Punjab at Abu Dhabi on October 10. Narine defended 14 runs in the last over of the match against the destructive Glenn Maxwell, eventually taking KKR to a nail-biting victory by 2-runs in the game.
Right after the game against Punjab, on-field umpire of the match Chirs Gaffeney, reported Sunil Narine’s bowling action under the suspected bowling actions to the IPL’s Suspect Bowling Action Committee, following which the Kolkata Knight Riders were forced to leave out Narine in their next two games.
The Kolkata Knight Riders would be mighty happy with the development, just ahead of their much important game against the Sunrisers Hyderabad, as since Sunil Narine has been out of the playing XI, KKR have lost two back-to-back games in the past week.
Sunil Narine’s bowling action was under the scanner earlier in 2015, when he was reported for similar reasons.
