In another setback for Sunil Narine, the West Indies player has been barred from bowling off-spinners in all matches organised by the BCCI, including the ongoing IPL.
Kolkata Knight Riders’ ace spinner Narine underwent a biomechanical analysis in Chennai after being reported for a suspected illegal action again during the IPL tie against Sun Risers Hyderabad in Visakhapatnam on April 22.
After reviewing the footage of the game and analysis in Chennai, the BCCI has decided to ban his off-spinners.
The BCCI had earlier banned Narine, whose ‘doosra’ was under the scanner, during the 2014 Champions League T20 where he was not allowed to represent Knight Riders in the final after being reported twice in as many games for a suspect action.
