Hobart Hurricanes fast bowler Ben Laughlin has been reprimanded and Kolkata Knight Riders spinner Sunil Narine suspended from bowling following the first Champions League T20 semi-final in Hyderabad.

Laughlin admitted to a Level 1 offence of showing dissent while Narine was reported for a suspected illegal bowling action for the second time in the tournament.

That means he has been suspended from bowling for the remainder of the tournament and will therefore not bowl in Saturday's final (4th October).

Laughlin was given an official reprimand after showing dissent at an umpire's decision during Kolkata's seven-wicket win which put them through to the final.

They will play Chennai Super Kings but will have to do so without being able to call upon Narine to bowl - and as a specialist bowler Kolkata can be expected to leave him out of their side entirely.

He was reported earlier in the tournament with his quicker ball coming in for scrutiny and he was reported again in the semi-final during the course of his spell of one for 24.

Narine will now be expected to head to the newly ICC-accredited bowling action testing centre in Chennai to have his bowling action fully tested.
