The bowling action of West Indies spinner Sunil Narine has once again come under scrutiny.
According to a report, the 29-year-old – playing for Lahore Qalandars in the Pakistan Super League – was placed on the warning list but can continue to take part in the competition, which is being played in the United Arab Emirates.
‘Narine has been reported for a suspected illegal bowling action during Wednesday’s PSL T20 game between Lahore Qalandars and Quetta Gladiators at Sharjah,’ the Pakistan Cricket Board said in a statement.
‘The match officials’ report on Narine’s bowling action will be sent to Cricket West Indies [CWI] and he will have to go through the process that is followed by the CWI, for suspected illegal bowling actions.’
Narine was first reported for an illegal action during the Champions League in India in 2014, which resulted in his withdrawal from the West Indies’ squad for the 2015 World Cup.
The latest report may jeopardise Narine’s participation in the Indian Premier League, which starts next month.
