Boost for West Indies as Sunil Narine cleared for selection

West Indian off-spinner Sunil Narine‘s injury fears were put to bed when he was declared fit to face England in the second T20 international match at the Kensington Oval.

Narine appeared to have done some serious damage to his knee in attempting a sliding stop at the third man region during the seventh over of England’s chase in the first T20 on Sunday.

Narine’s comeback comes as a major boost for West Indies in their bid to retain their crown when the World T20 carnival kicks off in Bangladesh this Sunday.

A press release from the West Indies Cricket Board(WICB) on Monday confirmed Narine’s recovery and subsequent availability for Tuesday’s game. “West Indies spinner Sunil Narine has recovered from the knee injury he suffered during Sunday’s first T20 International against England at Kensington Oval. He was expected to undergo a scan on Monday morning but it was not required,” the statement read.

Narine currently leads the ICC T20 bowling rankings for bowlers and will spearhead the Windies attack in the World T20.
