As the IPL season is near, the cricketers are as much eager as the fans themselves. But for Sunil Narine (Photo:BCCI), the West Indian spinner this dream can come to an end as his bowling was reported during an ongoing PSL (Pakistan Super League) T-20 Tournament in the United Arab Emirates.
During a match between Lahore Qalandars and Quetta Gladiators, the 29 year old was accused and warned due to a suspected illegal bowling action. The match officials stated that the reports of Narine’s bowling action will be sent to Cricket West Indies (CWI) and Narine has to go through the process that is followed by CWI for suspected illegal actions.
This isn’t the first that Narine has been accused of such illegal action. In 2014 during the Champions League in India then in an International match in Sri Lanka in November 2015, Narine was suspended after a few Biochemical tests were conducted which proved that his action was beyond the limit of 15 degrees that is allowed under International Cricket Council (ICC) rules. Narine was cleared only in April 2016 before the IPL season 2016, where he played for Kolkata Knight Riders. The latest reports again for his illegal bowling actions may jeopardize his participation in the IPL 2018 starting early in next month of April.
