West Indies spinner Sunil Narine who has been playing for Comilla Victorians in BPL 2015, has been suspended from bowling in all formats of cricket with immediate effect after his action has been found to be illegal as an independent assessment revealed that all variations of his deliveries exceeded the 15-degree limit. Narine’s action was reported earlier this month during the third ODI against Sri Lanka in Pallekele.
Narine is currently playing in the Bangladesh Premier League/BPL 2015 for Comilla Victorians, and this suspension means he won’t be allowed to bowl in the upcoming matches in BPL. Thus Comilla Victorians will face Sylhet Superstars on Nov 30 without Narine. He will fly back to Dhaka from Chittagong tonight and on-board on Sunday night headed to West Indies.
“We were prepared for the announcement,” Comilla Victorians owner Nafeesa Kamal told ESPNcricinfo. “We were told that we can expect something on November 29 so we had planned accordingly. We will definitely miss him. He was an asset to the team. We are now looking for a player to replace him.”
Sunil Narine got 4 wickets in four matches of BPL T20 2015 in Bangladesh.
