Sunil Narine banned from Super50 series

PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad, CMC- Embattled West Indies spinner Sunil Narine has been banned from participating in the NAGICO Super50 series to be played in Trinidad and Tobago and St.Kitts from January, cricket sources in the twin island republic have reported.

The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has reportedly rejected a request from the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board (T&TCB) to allow the off spinner to take part in the tournament.

The Guardian newspaper has quoted a source within the T&TCB as saying that the request was turned down because the WICB did not want to go against the findings of the International Cricket Council (ICC).

Narine has been banned from bowling by the ICC who says his action is illegal after he was reported during the second ODI between West Indies and Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka last month.

He recently failed a test on his bowling action at the Loughborough University testing centre in England.

Narine’s bowling woes began last year in India during the Champions League where he was banned from bowling in the finals of the tournament by the Kolkata Knight Riders.

He rebounded from the setback and was allowed to make his international return in the Sri Lanka series after missing the World Cup in Australia/New Zealand because he was working on his action.

Narine bowled T&T to the Nagico title last season with figures of six wickets for nine runs.
