West Indies offspinner Sunil Narine has been reported for a suspected illegal bowling action following his side’s 36-run win over Dolphins in the Champions League Twenty20 Group A match on Monday evening in Hyderabad.
The charge was laid by on-field umpires Anil Chaudhary and Chettihody Shamshuddin along with third umpire Kumar Dharmasena and specifically relates to Narine’s quicker ball. Under CLT20 guidelines, Narine may request for an official assessment from the BCCI’s suspect bowling action committee. Narine has been placed on the tournament’s ‘warning list’ but will still be able to play. However, if he is reported again while still on the warning list, he will be suspended from bowling for the remainder of the tournament.
