New Delhi: Suspended offspinner Sunil Narine has been named in the West Indies' squad for the ICC World Twenty20.

According to a report in ESPNcricinfo, the 27-year-old spinner was included in the 11-member squad for the March-April event, which will be held in India.

He was suspended from bowling in international cricket due to an illegal action, after being reported for a suspect action during the third ODI on West Indies' tour to Sri Lanka in November.

His bowling action found to have exceeded the 15-degree limit in an independent assessment.

Interestingly, he was also picked in West Indies' 2015 World Cup squad, but later withdrew to work on his bowling action.

The report claimed that Darren Sammy, who had previously lead the team to T20 World Cup success in 2012 in Sri Lanka, has been retained as the captain.
