According to the statement released by IPL, the bowling committee monitored Narine’s action from two - back and side - angles and it found that the elbow-bend was well within the permissible limits.
 
requested for an Official Assessment of Mr Narine’s action from the IPL Suspect Bowling Action Committee, submitting action footage in slow motion with back and side angles.
 
The Committee carefully reviewed all the deliveries of action footage sent of Mr Narine with the naked eye and has come to the conclusion that the elbow-bend appears to be within the range of permissible limits,” the statement read.
 
Narine was reported for a suspect action after the match against Kings XI Punjab in Abu Dhabi on October 10. KKR won the game by two runs with Narine playing an important role with his death bowling.
 
Following the report, the West Indian was placed on a warning list and although he could continue to bowl, he risked suspension if he had been reported for a second time.
 
However, the committee has asked Narine to produce the same action while bowling as the one submitted for review.
 
“The Committee also noted that Mr. Narine should reproduce the same action going forward in the matches as presented to the Committee in the video footage,” it said. (UNI)
