Following an injury to fast bowler Kemar Roach, and the conclusion of the 2012 IPL, Narine was drafted into the West Indies squad for the third and final Test against England in June 2012.

At the time he had played just six first-class matches, managing 34 wickets at an average of 11.88. Replacing fellow off spinner Shane Shillingford in the side, Narine made his Test debut on 10 June 2012.

A superb performance by Narine of five wickets for 28 runs on 16 July 2012 helped the West Indies beat New Zealand by 20 runs in their fifth and last ODI and win the current series 4–1 at Basseterre, St. Kitts.

As on 8 March 2014 he topped the ICC Twenty20 rankings of bowlers with 784 points. Saeed Ajmal of Pakistan at second, was way behind in points at 714, while Ajantha Mendis of Sri Lanka with 674 points completed the top three.

He is the only bowler to have bowled a maiden in a Super over in a Twenty20 match. He was left out of the 2021 ICC T20 CWC squad despite his good performance in IPL 2021, prompting several questions and reactions.

Bowling action

Narine has the reputation of a “mystery bowler”, due to the variations that he has on his off breaks, and how he disguises them, but has been reported for a suspect bowling action on a number of occasions. 

He missed playing in the final of the 2014 Champions League Twenty20 after being suspended for an illegal action with his arm bent by more than 15 degrees and in November 2015 was suspended from bowling in international cricket. 

His action was reported during the third ODI game against Sri Lanka. In April 2016, he was cleared for bowling in all formats of domestic and international cricket.

Narine’s action was again reported during the 2018 Pakistan Super League, but was cleared soon after. In 2020 it was reported yet again, this time during the 2020 Indian Premier League. It was cleared by the IPL Suspect Bowling Action Committee later in the season.
