ICC suspended West Indies spinner Sunil Narine for illegal bowling action

Nov 30, 2015 09:24 IST

International Cricket Council (ICC) on 29 November 2015 suspended West Indies off-spinner Sunil Narine from bowling in international cricket with immediate effect.

The ICC took a decision after an independent assessment found his bowling action to be illegal.

Thereafter, a test was performed on 17 November 2015 at the ICC's accredited testing centre in Loughborough University. The assessment revealed that all variations of his deliveries exceeded the 15 degrees level of tolerance permitted under the regulations.


Narine's bowling action was reported after the third ODI match against Sri Lanka in Pallekele on 7 November 2015.

In accordance with Article 6.1 of the regulations, Narine’s international suspension will also be recognised and enforced by all National Cricket Federations within domestic cricket events played in their own jurisdiction.

The player can apply for a re-assessment after modifying his bowling action in accordance with clause 2.4 of the Regulations for the Review of Bowlers Reported with Suspected Illegal Bowling Actions.
