    South Africa all-rounder Wayne Parnell has signed for Welsh county Glamorgan to play for them in the NatWest T20 Blast.

    Parnell’s participation has to be cleared by Cricket South Africa first and is also dependent on a successful visa application.

    The 25-year-old is due to join Glamorgan ahead of their opener against Surrey at the Kia Oval on 15 May.


    West Indies and Kolkata Knight Riders spinner Sunil Narine has been cleared to bowl again in the IPL by the BCCI’s Suspect Bowling Action Committee.

    The off-spinner has, however, been given a ‘final warning’. Narine’s name has been taken off the list of bowlers with suspect actions but he was warned that another transgression would result in him being banned for this IPL season, reports ESPNCricinfo.

    Narine as apparently delivering the offbreak with a flex in his elbow, which meant he was going back to the old action that had been reported during the 2014 Champions LeagueTwenty20. The review committee wants him to be consistent with his remodelled action.
