The much-awaited arrival of our Caribbean Knights is complete. Andre Russell and Sunil Narine landed in India during the early hours of Tuesday, checking into the team hotel to begin their seven-day quarantine. The duo flew in from the Caribbean to Mumbai via USA, and had a message for the fans at the end of the long journey they took here.
"Whenever you think about the IPL, you think about India," said Narine, reflecting on playing the tournament in UAE last season. "So, it's great to be back. Hopefully, we can have a better season than last year."
