Mumbai: Kolkata Knight Riders' (KKR) right-arm spinner Sunil Narine has been banned from bowling off-spinners in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) for a suspected illegal action, a Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) release said on Wednesday. He is, however, free to bowl using his other deliveries in his arsenal, the release added. He was also not banned from appearing for his IPL team in the ongoing tournament. "Mr. Narineās bowling action for his off-spinner contravenes Law 24.2 (as read with Law 24.3) of the Laws of Cricket and, therefore, the player is now banned from bowling the off-spinner in matches organised by the BCCI, including the IPL." "He may, however, continue to bowl his other deliveries (the knuckle ball and the quicker straight ball)," Anurag Thakur, BCCI secretary, said in a statement. With IANS.
