There have been very few players who have been associated with one franchise throughout the history of the Indian Premier League. While the likes of Parthiv Patel and Brendon Mccullum are seen in different colors over different seasons, players like Virat Kohli and Sunil Narine has remained with their respective franchises since the beginning.

The Kolkata Knight Riders have been lucky to have Sunil Narine in the lineup. The mystery spinner has played a major role in his franchise’s success over the years. His four overs play is a crucial role in restricting the opposition from scoring a great target to a good target. Off late, Narine has started to open the innings with the bat and provides the team with some useful runs at a good pace.

The mystery man

Narine reached to 100 IPL wickets on Monday when he took the wicket of Chris Morris against the Delhi Daredevils. He bagged the Man of the Match award for his brilliance with the ball as KKR won the match with my runs. Narine posted a picture with his dad on Instagram. His dad wished him for a bright future and had said that Narine had greater things to come. The spinner was very close to his dad and must have been deeply saddened by the death of his father. He dedicated this milestone to his late father who was dearest to him.

The mystery man is currently the purple cap holder in the IPL. He must continue his good form to ensure that KKR get more results in their favor. If he can contribute with more runs at the top, he has the opportunity to become the most valuable player in the Indian Premier League. Narine has become the go-to man for Dinesh Karthik and the skipper relies on him heavily to bowl the death overs.
