Sunil Narine

West Indies’ Sunil Narine takes part in a training session ahead of their ICC Twenty20 Cricket World Cup match against Australia in Dhaka, Bangladesh, Thursday, March 27, 2014.

The ICC today confirmed that an independent assessment has found the bowling action of West Indies Sunil Narine to be illegal and, as such, the off-spinner has been suspended from bowling in international cricket with immediate effect.

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, save that, with the consent of the West Indies Cricket Board, Narine may be able to play in domestic cricket events played under the auspices of the West Indies Cricket Board.

The assessment revealed that all variations of his deliveries exceeded the 15 degrees level of tolerance permitted under the regulations.

Narine was reported after the third ODI match against Sri Lanka in Pallekele in November.

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.

The test was performed on Tuesday, 17 November at the ICC’s accredited testing centre in Loughborough University.
