Sunil Narine banned from Bowling Off-spinner

Kolkata, April 29: The confusion over Sunil Narine's bowling action came to an end on Wednesday when an official press release by BCCI Secretary Anurag Thakur, stated that the player is banned from bowling the off-spinner in matches.

On April 22, Narine was reported by the match officials for a suspected illegal bowling action for certain deliveries bowled by him during the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

The BCCI Suspect Bowling Action Committee has reviewed the evidence of the match footage and the analysis provided by SRASSC.

Following the provisions of the IPL Suspected Illegal Bowling Action Policy, the committee has concluded that the Trinidadian's bowling action for his off-spinner, contravenes Law 24.2 of the Law of Cricket and therefore he is banned from bowling the off-spinner in matches organised by the BCCI, including the IPL. He may however, continue to bowl his other deliveries.

If Narine bowls the off-spinner in any of the matches, the on-field umpire would call it a "No-Ball", and would issue a further report, in such a circumstance he would be suspended from bowling in BCCI organised matches.
