Kolkata, April 4: Kolkata Knight Riders' star spinner Sunil rine, who underwent a repeat test for his suspect bowling action in Chenni, skipped the Indian Premier League (IPL) team's practice session for the second consecutive day on Saturday.
rine, who checked in the city on Thursday after his test at the Intertiol Cricket Council (ICC) accredited centre, Sri Ramachandra University for his suspect action, was missing on the turf as his teammates led by skipper Gautam Gambhir slogged hard at the Eden Gardens nets.
"He has skipped the nets not because he is barred or anything like that. Since it's an optiol practice, and probably he is jet lagged. So he chose to give it a miss," a KKR official said. Both the KKR official and a Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) office bearer refused to comment about the outcome of the test, whose report is yet to be submitted to the BCCI. IANS
