West Indies spinner Sunil Narine has made a rapid recovery from a knee injury and is fit to play in the second Twenty20 International against England in Barbados tomorrow (11th March).

Narine left the field during England's innings in the first match, which the West Indies won by 27 runs, after falling awkwardly.

He was scheduled to undergo a scan earlier today but that was cancelled due to his recovery.

Narine, who has taken 29 wickets in 23 Twenty20 Internationals, returned figures of one for eight in two overs by having Jos Buttler caught by Johnson Charles in the opening game.

The news, a boost for the West Indies coming just days before they head to Bangladesh to begin the defence of their ICC World Twenty20 title, means they have all 15 players available of them ahead of the second match in the series.

The third and final game is on Thursday 13th March.
