Windies cricketer, Sunil Narine, who is playing for the Lahore Qalandars in Pakistan Super League’s third season (PSL 2018), was reported for suspected illegal bowling action on Thursday (15 March). Sunil Narine is touted as a match winner and a world class bowler, but the recent development came during Thursday night’s PSL 2018 clash between Lahore Qalandars and Quetta Gladiators in Sharjah.
After getting reported for suspected illegal bowling action, Sunil Narine is on the warning list as of now. It has been reported that the 29-year-old can still be picked by Lahore Qalandars to bowl in the tournament. The Pakistan Super League norms adhere to the ICC regulations when it comes to defining an illegal bowling action. The ICC norms state 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.
Report for Sunil Narine’s suspected illegal bowling action to be forwarded to West Indies Cricket Board
The PSL 2018 match officials’ report is also to be forwarded to the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) for further action. As reported by Cricbuzz, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) spoke about Sunil Narine’s suspected illegal bowling action and said,
“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 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.”
Sunil Narine’s history of suspected illegal bowling actions
It was once before in November 2015, that Sunil Narine was suspended from bowling in international cricket, after his action was found illegal and reported during an ODI in Sri Lanka. However, the Trinidadian ace bowler was cleared by the ICC in all formats of domestic and international cricket, two days before the start of the 2016 edition of the Indian Premier League, in which Narine played for Kolkata Knight Riders.
Narine was also called out earlier for a suspect action during the Champions League 2014 and IPL 2015. For the second time, however, the ace bowler was let off with just a warning from the BCCI.
