St John’s : In another setback to the already plagued West Indies cricket team, star off-spinner Sunil Narine may also pull out of the World Cup squad due to continuous work on his bowling action that saw him miss the tours of India and South Africa.
According to former West Indies Players Association (WIPA) President Dinanath Ramnarine, Narine is set to opt out of the 50-over showpiece event and the ex-player even hinted that the decision had to do with continuous work on the off-spinner’s under-scanner bowling action.
“Okay guys it’s Sunil Narine He will be out of the WC 2015 I wish Sunil all d best as he continues to work very hard on his bowling issues,” Ramnarine tweeted.
Narine’s action has been under the spot since being reported while playing for Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL last year and was later suspended from participating in BCCI organised tournaments.
Despite having not played international cricket since getting reported, Narine was included in the 15-man squad for the World Cup by the Clive Lloyd-led selection committee. Though there has been no word from Narine and the WICB on the pull-out rumour but all’s certainly not well in the West Indies camp after the team had abruptly left the Indian tour mid way in October 2014. —PTI
