DUBAI: Two-time IPL champions Kolkata Knight Riders are hopeful of an “appropriate resolution” to the issue of spinner Sunil Narine being reported for suspect bowling action.
The franchise, however, did not say whether he would be left out of the team for their upcoming matches.
Narine has been placed in the warning list and one more reporting of his action by the on-field umpires could lead to him being barred from bowling in the ongoing event.
“This came as a surprise to the franchise considering that he has played over 115 games in the IPL since 2012 and as many as 68 games since 2015, when he was last reported during the IPL season for a suspect action,” read a statement from Kolkata Knight Riders on Monday.
“We are hopeful that there would be an appropriate resolution quickly. We appreciate the cooperation being extended by the IPL in expediting this matter,” added the statement, which came ahead of their clash against Royal Challengers Bangalore in Sharjah.
