Kolkata Knight Riders left out spin spearhead Sunil Narine in their Indian Premier League (IPL) encounter against Royal Challengers Bangalore in Dubai on Monday. He was replaced by Englishman Tom Banton, who is making his IPL debut.

Narine’s bowling action was reported after Kolkata Knight Riders’ thrilling two-run win over the Kings XI Punjab in Abu Dhabi on Saturday. Narine, who played a key role in the win, returned figures of 2 for 28. “The report was made by the on-field umpires [Ulhas Gandhe and Chris Gaffaney] according to the IPL’s Suspected Illegal Bowling Action Policy,” an IPL statement said, adding that Narine would be placed “on the warning list” but would be permitted to bowl unless there was another report against him.
