Narine cleared to resume bowling


Sunil Narine has been cleared to resume bowling after the ICC deemed his action to be legal.

West Indies off-spinner Narine was reported during the third one-day international against Sri Lanka in November.

Narine subsequently missed the Windies' triumphant World Twenty20 campaign, but, following tests in Chennai, is free to return to domestic and international cricket.

"At the retest, it was revealed that the amount of elbow extensions in Narine's bowling action for all his deliveries that were tested was within the 15-degree level of tolerance permitted under ICC regulations for the review of bowlers reported with suspected illegal bowling actions," an ICC statement said.

Narine had previously been reported for a suspect action in the Champions League T20 and withdrew from the Windies' Cricket World Cup side in 2015 in order to remedy the problem.

The off-spinner is set to represent Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League, which starts on Saturday.
