[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board (TTCB) has expressed support for West Indies spinner Sunil Narine who has been banned from bowling off breaks in matches organized by the BCCI.
The TCCB has dispatched a letter to Narine pledging its support and offering assistance to the spinner whose ban also extends to matches in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
The BCCI has also threatened to suspend Narine if he uses the off break again in the ongoing IPL but he is allowed to continue bowling his other deliveries.
“The Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board are very supportive of Sunil Narine as he currently embarks on addressing the issues raised by the BCCI concerning his bowling action,” said Chief Executive Officer of the TTCB, Suruj Ragoonath.
“We are fully committed to assisting Sunil in whatever way he needs our support. We know it is a trying time and it’s difficult but we know Sunil has the necessary resolve to overcome this situation and continue to mesmerise batsmen around the world.”
Narine’s ban was imposed after the BCCI suspect bowling action committee reviewed evidence over the weekend.
Narine, a member of the IPL outfit Kolkata Knight Riders, is now expected to undergo corrective work on his action again after which he can request for another assessment by the BCCI committee. [CMC]
