Narine has not played since that victory over Kings XI, missing Kolkata's defeats to Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians.
In order to continue a hassle-free tournament ahead, KKR dropped him for a couple of matches and requested the Suspect Bowling Action Committee to review his action.
Narine was reported for a suspect motion throughout his staff's conflict in opposition to Kings XI Punjab final Saturday and one other such occasion might have led him to being barred from bowling within the league. His name has also been taken off from the suspect action warning list, an IPL media release said. "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", the release read.
After being reported, Narine was positioned on the IPL warning checklist. SRH, with 5 losses from 8 matches, are at number 5 on the points table while KKR are at number 4 with 4 wins and as many losses from the same number of matches. The IPL Bowling Action Committee reviewed the footage of his action and deemed it was within the rules. The committee, having studied footage of his bowling, concluded that the elbow bend was "within the range of permissible limits".
Narine picked up two wickets in his four overs during the match last Saturday, which KKR won by two runs while defending 165.
Narine has now been from the suspect bowling action warning list and is likely to make his return back into the KKR playing XI against Sunrisers Hyderabad later in the day.
It should be noted that there was no Suspect Bowling Action Committee before this incident or if there was, no mention of it was made anywhere. The spinner had even missed the 2015 World Cup to work on his bowling action. The ICC gave Naren the permission to bowl again in April 2016, but he did not participate in the Twenty-Twenty World Cup that year.
His action was also reported during the 2018 Pakistan Super League but was cleared eventually.
