73325 Sri Lanka v West Indies - ICC World Twenty20 2012 Final
The International Cricket Council (ICC) today confirmed that following remedial work and retest, the bowling action of the West Indies’ Sunil Narine has been found to be legal, and the off-spinner can now resume bowling in both international cricket and domestic cricket events worldwide.
 
At the retest, it was revealed that the amount of elbow extensions in Narine’s bowling action for all his deliveries that were tested was within the 15-degree level of tolerance permitted under the ICC regulations for the review of bowlers reported with suspected illegal bowling actions.
 
The umpires are free to report Narine in the future if they believe he uses a suspect action.
 
The retest was performed at the Sri Ramachandra University in Chennai on 28 March.
 
Narine was reported during the third One Day International against Sri Lanka on 7 November 2015 in Pallekele and subsequently banned.
