An IPL media statement was released a few moments ago which read, "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, having studied footage of his bowling, concluded that the elbow bend was "within the range of permissible limits".

"Sunil Narine, the Kolkata Knight Riders player, has been cleared by the IPL's suspect bowling action committee", the IPL stated in a press release.

Half of the career Sunil Narine has been busy with rectifying his bowling action and once again, he had to undergo a bowling test after he was reported in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL).

Narine cleared by IPL suspect bowling action committee. Narine picked up two wickets in his 4 overs in the course of the match final Saturday, which KKR gained by two runs whereas defending 165. And with on-field umpires reporting him again, Narine had fallen back on Crowe to help rework his action for the remaining games of the 13th edition of the IPL. The IPL Bowling Action Committee reviewed the footage of his action and deemed it was within the rules.

He said doctors had no information about how long the patient stayed inside the freezer and whether his death was related to that. His family took him to hospital on Monday though doctors could not find anything wrong with him, the Metro reported.

Narine might be added to KKR line-up for their match against Sunrisers Hyderabad later today. Both SRH and KKR find themselves in a must-win after consecutive defeats and need to win to stay alive in the race for the playoffs. He was reported during the 2015 IPL as well and was eventually suspended from bowling in November that year.

Though he was allowed to bowl, Narine was put on the bench by KKR for the next two games against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Mumbai Indians (MI) which the franchise lost. The spinner had even missed the 2015 World Cup to work on his bowling action.

The International Cricket Council cleared his action in April 2016 but he had to pull out of the T20 World Cup in India that year. In March 2018, while playing in Pakistan Super League, there were complaints about Naren's bowling action.
