One of the mainstays of KKR’s bowling attack for years, Sunil Narine’s batting exploits have come to the fore of late more than his bowling. He suffered a down-run in his bowling when he was called for a suspect action which forced him to modify his action. But Narine redeemed himself back with his batting capabilities when he was promoted as an opener by KKR. He gave blazing starts to his side and became a threat to the opposition in the early part of the innings. The team management has time and again reposed faith in his all-round abilities, he was retained by the franchise ahead of the 2022 IPL Auction and will be looking to contribute in this season as well.
