Kolkata Knight Riders spinner Sunil Narine has had his bowling action cleared and been taken off the IPL’s warning list.

Off-spinner Narine was reported for an alleged suspect action shortly after Kolkata’s IPL victory over Kings XI Punjab on October 10 and another such report could have led him to being banned from bowling in the tournament.

The IPL said in a statement on Sunday that the 32-year-old had been cleared by the competition’s Suspect Bowling Action Committee.

The statement said: “KKR requested for an official assessment of Mr Narine’s action from the IPL Suspect Bowling Action Committee, submitting action footage in slow motion with back and side angles.

“The Committee carefully reviewed all the deliveries of action footage sent of Mr Narine with the naked eye and has come to the conclusion that the elbow-bend appears to be within the range of permissible limits.”

Narine has not played since that victory over Kings XI, missing Kolkata’s defeats to Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians.
