Kolkata Knight Riders spinner Sunil Narine's bowling action has been reported again after Saturday's IPL match against Kings XI Punjab, the league has said.

"The report was made by the on-field umpires according to the IPL's suspected illegal bowling action policy," league authorities said in a statement after the match in Abu Dhabi.

The 32-year-old West Indies spinner would be put on a "warning list", it added.

Narine can continue to bowl in the tournament until he is reported again.

The bowling all-rounder was reported twice during the now-defunct Champions League T20 in 2014, following which Narine remodelled his action but the problem persisted.

Narine was subsequently reported again in the 2015 IPL and also after a one-day match against Sri Lanka that year and then again during the 2018 Pakistan Super League before being cleared to bowl.

The T20 specialist returned 2-28 in Saturday's thrilling two-run victory, bowling a tight last over to earn praise from captain Dinesh Karthik.
