The bowling all-rounder remodelled his action after he was reported twice during the now-defunct Champions League T20 in 2014. He was reported in the 2015 IPL and also after a one-day match against Sri Lanka the same year. He was reported again during the 2018 Pakistan Super League.

Each time, Narine was subsequently cleared to bowl.

KKR said they were “surprised” by the latest warning and would work with the IPL to get Narine cleared. They dropped the Caribbean off-spinner for the next two matches.

KKR, led by England s limited-overs captain Eoin Morgan, are twice IPL champions and currently sit fourth in the eight-team IPL. They will play in Abu Dhabi later on Sunday against Sunrisers Hyderabad, led by Australian David Warner.
