Sunil Narine in the IPL so far - Matches 3 | Runs - 134 | Fours - 9 | Sixes - 12 | SR - 204

After a gap of many years, Sunil Narine is back at the top of the order for KKR and he’s back in style. The veteran has already scored 134 runs in 3 matches at an amazing strike rate of 204. The big man has already smashed 12 sixes and there are many more that one can expect from his bat. An ever-reliable team man is back at doing what the team requires him to do and performing at his best yet again.

One could call this move as the Guru Gambhir Touch, and it’s reaping a lot of benefits for KKR. Sunil has been given one job which is to just go out there and express himself and he’s just done that last night. A tremendous knock of 85 which steered KKR to a humongous 272-run total against DC. He looks like a rejuvenated batter where he’s playing the short ball well, anticipating the lengths early and punishing the bad balls like he always has. His pair-up with Salt helps him even more, where he has an aggressive partner who already puts pressure on the opposition bowlers.

KKR’s Powerplay Carnage has reached a completely different level with Narine going up at the top of the order. With him doing his role to perfection at the top, KKR’s batting looks even more lethal with big hitters coming in back-to-back. The best part of Sunil is that apart from his batting prowess, he’s bowling still at his best. Economical bowling in the middle overs coupled with fiery starts at the top of the order has taken Sunil back to his very best. This difference has already reaped results for KKR with them winning 3 out of their 3 games and Sunil being their Man of the Match in their last two wins. All in all, KKR and Sunil Narine are back at their absolute best and a promising season is ahead of them as they continue their path towards their 3rd IPL Title this season.
