Sunil Narine, who represents the Lahore Qalandars in the Pakistan Super League, has been reported on Thursday (March 15) for a suspected illegal bowling action during last night’s clash between his side and Quetta Gladiators in Sharjah.
Since he is on the warning list as of now, he can be picked in the side and bowl in the tournament. The PSL adheres to the ICC’s regulations with respect to illegal bowling action, which states that if a player is reported while on the warning list, he will be suspended from bowling in the tournament thereafter, but can be picked in the side.
The match officials’ report will also be forwarded to the West Indies Cricket Board for further action. “Narine has been reported for a suspected illegal bowling action during Wednesday s PSL Twenty20 game between Lahore Qalandars and Quetta Gladiators at Sharjah,” the PCB 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, in November 2015, was suspended from bowling in international cricket after his action was found illegal after having been reported during an ODI in Sri Lanka. However, he was cleared by the ICC in all formats of domestic and international cricket two days before the start of the IPL in 2016.
