Kolkata Knight Riders spinner Sunil Narine was on Thursday cleared to bowl his off-spinners by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) after undergoing a successful correction of his bowling action.

He was, however, cautioned by the board to be careful and not deviate from his remodelled action.

The right-arm spinner was banned from bowling off-spinners in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) for a suspected illegal action.

Narine was reported by the match officials for a suspected illegal bowling action for certain deliveries during an IPL match against Sunrisers Hyderabad in Visakhapatnam on April 22.

He then subsequently appeared for a biomechanical analysis of his bowling action at the Sri Ramachandra Arthroscopy and Sports Sciences Centre (SRASSC) in Chennai.

The defending champions, KKR, had threatened to pull out of the 2015 IPL if Narine was not allowed to play in the current edition of the eye-grabbing tournament.
