first_imgLONDON, CMC:West Indies off-spinner Sunil Narine has been cleared by the International Cricket Council to bowl again in international cricket.The 27-year-old successfully underwent tests at the Sri Ramachandra University in Chennai on March 28 after spending months remodelling his action.He was banned last November after the ICC ruled his action to be illegal, exceeding the 15 degrees tolerance allowed under its regulations.Earlier yesterday, Kolkata Knight Riders coach Jacques Kallis had reported that the franchise was yet to hear from the ICC on whether Narine had been cleared to play in the Indian Premier League starting on the weekend.”He has done a lot of work. We have not got the official verdict from the ICC yet, but I am sure they will come out positive,” Kallis told reporters here.While in India training, Narine’s father passed away, forcing the player to return to Port-of-Spain.
