Sunil Narine may no longer be allowed to bowl in IPL if…


In what could add to the trouble of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), its spinner Sunil Narine has been once again reported for chucking. The spinner was reported for chucking in the match against Kings XI Punjab by on-field umpires Ulhas Gandhe and Chris Gaffaney as per the IPL’s Suspected Illegal Bowling Action Policy.

He could be barred from bowling again if one more breach is reported. As of now, Sunil Narine will be placed on the warning list and is permitted to continue to bowl in the tournament.

Chucking, commonly known as throwing, is an illegal bowling action which occurs when a bowler straightens the bowling arm when delivering the ball.

Sunil Narine has been reported multiple times for chucking and at one point wasn’t allowed to bowl after which he sharpened his batting skills.

However, in the last two games, he has been very difficult to pick as Prabh Simran Singh and Nicholas Pooran found out at the death as he finished with 2 for 28 winning a near impossible match for his team.

A press release provides: “Sunil Narine, the Kolkata Knight Riders player, has been reported for bowling with a Suspected Illegal Bowling Action during his side’s Dream11 Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 match against Kings XI Punjab at Abu Dhabi.”

“Another report will result in Mr Narine being suspended from bowling in the Dream11 IPL 2020 until cleared by the BCCI Suspect Bowling Action Committee,” the release stated.
