In what comes as a big boost for Kolkata Knight Riders, Sunil Narine has been cleared by the IPL's Suspect Bowling Action Committee and his name has been taken off the suspect action warning list, an IPL media release stated on Sunday (October 18).

Narine was reported for a suspect action after the match against Kings XI Punjab in Abu Dhabi. The Knight Riders won the game by two runs with Narine playing an important role with his death bowling. The West Indian was then placed on a warning list and although he could continue to bowl, he risked suspension if he had been reported for a second time.

The Knight Riders, unwilling to take any risk, left him out for a couple of matches while they requested the Suspect Bowling Action Committee to review his action. The committee, having studied footage of his bowling, concluded that the elbow bend was 'within the range of permissible limits'. However, the committee added that Narine should continue with the same action as the one submitted for review.

"KKR requested for an Official Assessment of Mr 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 Mr 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 release stated.

"The Committee also noted that Mr. Narine should reproduce the same action going forward in the IPL 2020 matches as presented to the Committee in the video footage. Mr Narine has now been removed from the IPL Suspect Action Warning List," added the release.

Narine has had problems with his action since 2014. He was reported twice in the Champions League 2014 tournament and missed the 2015 World Cup in order to work on his action. He was reported during the 2015 IPL as well and was eventually suspended from bowling in November that year.

The International Cricket Council cleared his action in April 2016 but he had to pull out of the T20 WC in India that year. In March 2018, he was reported again during the Pakistan Super League.

The Knight Riders, who have four wins from eight games in the 13th edition so far, take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in the first match of Sunday's double-header.
