The bowling of Kolkata Knight Riders star off-spinner is out. The BCCI Suspect Bowling Action Committee, which includes likes of Anil Kuble,‎ has reviewed evidence umpires during the Kolkata Knight Riders v Sunrisers Hyderabad match in Visakhapatnam provided and has come to the conclusion that Narine’s off-spinner violates Law 24.2 of laws of cricket.He, however, can continue to bowl his other variations namely straight one and knuckle bowl. 

He was reported 5 days ago by match officials just ahead of match against Chennai Super kings.    

In a press release IPL said:

On 22 April 2015, Sunil Narine of Kolkata Knight Riders was reported by the Match Officials for a suspected illegal bowling action for certain deliveries bowled by him during the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad in Visakhapatnam.

Pursuant to this report, Mr. Narine visited the Sri Ramachandra Arthroscopy and Sports Sciences Centre (SRASSC) in Chennai for a biomechanical analysis of his bowling action. 

The BCCI Suspect Bowling Action Committee‎ has reviewed the evidence of the match footage and the analysis provided by SRASSC. 

Following the provisions of the IPL Suspected Illegal Bowling Action Policy, the committee has concluded that Mr. Narine’s bowling action for his off-spinner, contravenes Law 24.2 (as read with Law 24.3) of the Laws of Cricket and therefore the player is now banned from bowling the off-spinner in matches organised by the BCCI, including the IPL. He may however continue to bowl his other deliveries (the knuckle ball and the quicker straight ball). 

If Mr. Narine were to again bowl the off-spinner in this season’s IPL, the on-field umpires would apply Law 24.2 and call “No ball” and, at the end of the match, would issue a further Report. Pursuant to clause 3.4 of the IPL Suspected Illegal Bowling Action Policy, the player would in such circumstances automatically be suspended from bowling in BCCI-organised matches. 

Mr. Narine may undergo a course of bowling rehabilitation and take corrective measures to ensure that his action does not contravene Law 24 and may then request a further Official Assessment by the committee.
