BCCI Bans Sunil Narine to Bowl off Spin


Sunil NarineThe trump card for Kolkata Night Riders and West Indian cricket Sunil Narine has been reported for suspect bowling action while he was playing for his IPL team KKR against Sunrisers Hyderabad therefore he is banned from bowling his off spinners as it is against the Law 24.2 of the Laws of cricket. The spinner had to go through a biomechanical analysis in Chennai after he was reported for his suspect bowling action and as per the reports his action was against the Law 24.2 and thus BCCI decided to ban him from delivering off spinners in any BCCI organised match. ย This is not the first time when this mystery spinner has been reported for his bowling action. BCCI had banned the West Indies player for his โ€˜Dusraโ€™ in championsโ€™ league 2014 Final match against Chennai Super kings. This ban affected West Indies world cup campaign as the spinner had to go under several test and improvement regimes.

The bowler was then cleared for his action and was important asset to his team KKR, but the bowler was again reported for his illegitimate action for bowling off spin. As per information the bowler can be the part of his teams in BCCI organised matches and he is allowed to bowl his other deliveries like knuckle ball, straighter ones but not off spinners.

If the bowler is found bowling the off spin in the match then umpires have the right to call it a โ€˜No ballโ€™ as per Law 24.2 and they can issue a report against him after the match which will lead to his suspension from any BCCI organised match.

The bowler can again work on his action via a bowling rehabilitation and take measures to not offend the Law 24.2 and appeal to BCCI for re assessment of his bowling action.
