Off-spinner Sunil Narine has withdrawn from the West Indies World Cup squad to continue to work on his suspect bowling action.
Narine was reported twice for his controversial action during the T20 Champions League in October and was ruled out of the final of the competition for the Kolkata Knight Riders.
While the 26-year-old is not banned from international competition, Narine indicated that he needed more time to adjust to his new bowling action.
“Whilst I am very happy with the progress made to date with my action…..I am withdrawing from the World Cup,” he is quoted as saying by Times of India.
“Going into the World Cup is a little too much too soon and, after consulting the WICB, for both West Indies and my sake we have decided to delay my return to international cricket until I am 100% confident in all that I do,” he added.
It comes as a big blow for the West Indies as Narine was the side’s number one spinner heading into the next month’s tournament.
Left-armer Sulieman Benn is also in the squad, however the WICB are expected to announce a replacement in the coming days.
