West Indies spinner Sunil Narine has withdrawn from the World Cup since he wants to continue working on his remodelled bowling action.
Narine has not played any international cricket ever since he was reported for a suspect action while playing for the Kolkata Knight Riders in the Champions League Twenty20 (CLT20) last October.
“Going in to the World Cup is a little too much too soon,” Narine said. “After consulting the WICB, for both West Indies and my sake we have decided to delay my return to international cricket until I am 100 per cent confident in all that I do.
“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.
“I would like to thank the WICB for their support and wish the West Indies team the very best for the World Cup campaign.”
