The Caribbean off-spinner will, thus, be available for the Knight Riders’ afternoon game on Sunday against the Sunrisers Hyderabad.
KKR missed Narine badly during the period in which he was on a last warning, suffering heavy defeats to Royal Challengers Bangalore and the Mumbai Indians.
“Narine has been cleared by the IPL’s Suspect Bowling Action Committee. Narine was reported for bowling with a Suspected Illegal Bowling Action during his team’s Dream11 Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 match against Kings XI Punjab at Abu Dhabi on October 10. Following the report, Narine was placed on the IPL Warning List,” an IPL statement on Sunday said.
“KKR requested for an official assessment of Narine’s action from the IPL Suspect Bowling Action Committee, submitting action footage in slow motion with back and side angles. The Committee carefully reviewed all the deliveries of action footage sent of Narine with the naked eye and has come to the conclusion that the elbow-bend appears to be within the range of permissible limits.
“The Committee also noted that Narine should reproduce the same action going forward in the IPL 2020 matches as presented to the Committee in the video footage,” the statement added.
“Narine has now been removed from the IPL Suspect Action Warning List.”
KKR had earlier said that they and Narine were both “surprised” at the West Indian bowler being reported again for chucking.
KKR had also said that they “are respectful of the process that the IPL has put in place to have his action reviewed, and are working closely with the IPL in this matter.”
