Trinidad & Tobago and West Indies offspinner Sunil Narine has been once again cleared to bowl by the BCCI’s Suspect Bowling Action Committee.
The 26-year-old underwent another biomechanical analysis of his remodelled bowling action at the ICC and BCCI-accredited Sri Ramachandra Arthroscopy and Sports Science Centre in Chennai, India.
Narine, who is playing for Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League (IPL), however, has been given a “final warning” and any further report for a suspected illegal bowling action during the IPL tournament this season will automatically mean he will not be allowed to bowl for the remainder of the season.
Samuel Badree, the Trinidad & Tobago and West Indies legspinner has signed to play with the Brisbane Heat for the 2015-16 Big Bash League (BBL) in Australia.
The 34-year-old Badree has been the No. 1 ranked Twenty20 International bowler in the world for more than a year. He is representing Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League.
Badree has played in 22 T20Is for the West Indies and played an important role in his team winning the 2012 World T20 Tournament in Sri Lanka.
Kumar Sangakkara, 37, the former Sri Lankan captain who retired from one-day international after this year’s World Cup has signed with Hobart Hurricanes for the 2015-16 Big Bash League (BBL) season.
Sangakkara has played 130 Tests, 404 ODIs and 56 T20 internationals for Sri Lanka and is regarded as a world-leading batsman.
