Dubai, UAE - West Indies spin­ner Su­nil Nar­ine has been taken off the warn­ing list for sus­pected bowl­ing ac­tion in the IPL, the tour­na­ment's or­gan­is­ers said on Sun­day.

The Kolkata Knight Rid­ers off-spin­ner was re­ported for sus­pected chuck­ing dur­ing a game on Oc­to­ber 10 and an­other re­port would have re­sulted in a bowl­ing ban from this sea­son's tour­na­ment.

Kolkata ap­pealed to the IPL's sus­pect bowl­ing ac­tion com­mit­tee to re­view Nar­ine's ac­tion.

"KKR 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 IPL said in a state­ment hours be­fore Kolkata's game against Sun­ris­ers Hy­der­abad.

"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 el­bow­bend ap­pears to be within the range of per­mis­si­ble lim­its."

"Nar­ine should re­pro­duce the same ac­tion go­ing for­ward in the IPL 2020 matches as pre­sented to the Com­mit­tee in the video footage," the state­ment added.

The com­mit­tee com­prises Rahul Dravid, ICC match ref­eree Jav­a­gal Sri­nath, for­mer ICC um­pire K Har­i­ha­ran and BCCI treasurer Arun Dhu­mal.

Nar­ine was not se­lected against Hy­der­abad on Sun­day. The 32 year old has been re­ported for chuck­ing sev­eral times dur­ing his in­ter­na­tional ca­reer. He was barred from bowl­ing in 2015 by the ICC but came back with a re-mod­elled ac­tion. His ac­tion was also un­der scru­tiny in the 2018 Pak­istan Su­per League.
