SPORTS – Narine banned

West Indies off-spinner Sunil Narine has been suspended from bowling in international cricket with immediate effect after the International Cricket Council (ICC) confirmed that an independent assessment found his bowling action to be illegal.

“In accordance with Article 6.1 of the regulations, Narine’s international suspension will also be recognised and enforced by all National Cricket Federations within domestic cricket events played in their own jurisdiction, save that, with the consent of the West Indies Cricket Board, Narine may be able to play in domestic cricket events played under the auspices of the West Indies Cricket Board,” a statement from the ICC said this morning.

The assessment revealed that all variations of his deliveries exceeded the 15 degrees level of tolerance permitted under the regulations.

Narine was reported after the third ODI match against Sri Lanka in Pallekele in November.

However the ICC said he can apply for a re-assessment after modifying his bowling action in accordance with clause 2.4 of the Regulations for the Review of Bowlers Reported with Suspected Illegal Bowling Actions.

The test was performed on Tuesday, 17 November at the ICC’s accredited testing centre in Loughborough University.

    If it wasn’t so unbelievable, it would be funny. Imagine Narine being banned in Murilitharan’s country for an illegal action.
