West Indies off spinner Sunil Narine has been banned from bowling in the finals of the Champions League Twenty20 tournament in India Saturday

Narine, who plays for the Kolkata Knight Riders, was reported for the second time in two matches for a suspect action following his team's semi-final victory over Hobart Hurricanes today.

He was reported by the umpires after the Knight Riders won by seven wickets to qualify for the finals.

Narine was already on the tournament’s warning list after he was also reported following the Knight Riders' final group match, against the Dolphins.

Narine is expected to attend the Sri Ramachandra University in Chennai, which has been accredited by the International Cricket Council as a testing centre for suspect bowling actions, to have his action tested.
