Mystery Spinner Narine Gets Help From TT Sports Ministry


Embattled West Indies Spinner, Sunil Narine, will be getting assistance from the Ministry of Sport and Youth Affairs in the form of elite rehabilitative coaching. Sports Minister Darryl Smith will be making the announcement at a press conference at the Ministry tomorrow.

A statement from the Ministry said that its role will be to facilitate and advance Narine’s return to regional and international cricket.

Narine has been suspended from bowling in international and domestic international cricket by the International Cricket Council (ICC). However, he is being allowed by the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board (TTCB) to represent his local club, Queen’s Park in the 2016 Premier 1 League competition. Narine is aiming to rehabilitate his bowling action in time for the T20 World Cup in March.

Currently the spinner is getting assistance from Queen’s Park coach David Furlonge and national assistant coach Kelvin Williams. He is also working with bowling consultant Carl Crowe, who was the former assistant coach of the England Women’s Cricket team.

The upcoming tests on Narine's bowling action will take place at the end of the month at Loughborough University in England. 

Sunil Narine has made a name for himself by being one of the best spinners in the world, winning titles for the teams he’s represented including Trinidad and Tobago, the West Indies and the Kolkata Knight Riders
