Ace West Indies spinner Sunil Narine on Wednesday reportedly pulled out of country’s #Cricket World Cup 2015 squad to focus his attention on his controversial bowling action.
As per reports, Sunil Narine announced his decision to withdraw from #Cricket World Cup 2015 squad of West Indies team by saying that he still needed more time before taking to bowling at World Cup stage.
Narine’s decision was also supported by West Indies Cricket Board saying that the 26-year-old cricketer had undergone remedial training to improve his bowling after he was banned from Champions League T20 2014 for illegal action.
West Indies Cricket Board added that Narine was banned for exceeding 15 degree fixation limit.
In statement issued to media, WICB said that the cricket board supports Narine’s decision to withdraw from #Cricket World Cup 2015 squad till his bowling action is fit for the intensity of #Cricket World Cup as it would be ‘unfair to him and West Indies squad’.
WICB said that they would soon announce a replacement for ace spinner Sunil Narine.
International Cricket Council in a statement quoted Narine as saying ‘Whilst I am very happy with the progress made to date with my action, and I express my thanks to the coaches working with me in Trinidad and Dr. Daryl Foster in Perth, Australia, I am withdrawing from the World Cup’.
