A lot of people have an obsession for certain colours and have different ways of flaunting it. However, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) spinner, Sunil Narine has taken his love for the pink colour to a completely different level. One of his KKR teammate Rovman Powell recently took to Instagram to disclose Narine’s love for the pink. Over the years Narine has been the trump card for his IPL franchise from Kolkata.

This ‘mystery spinner’ from West Indies made his IPL debut in 2012 and took the world cricket by a storm. He literally terrorised batsmen across all formats with his distinctive skills. Since then, over the years he has been skipper Gautam Gambhir’s go-to bowler in all situations. Though KKR could not qualify for the finals in the ongoing edition of the lucrative cricket league, Narine impressed one and all yet again, however, this time around it was more so with his batting more than his work with the ball.

In what was a surprise and also a gamble to a certain extent, he was made to open the innings for Kolkata for a major part of this season. The move, however, worked out brilliantly for them as the Caribbean smacked the bowlers all over the park and amassed 224 runs from 16 games at a staggering average of 172.30. He even went on to score 50 off just 15 balls against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) which is the fastest fifty in IPL history.

The secret behind Narine’s love for the pink colour:

By posting a video on Instagram, Powell revealed the little secret about Narine. The post read: “@ravipowell52 shares a secret about @sunilnarine24 that you’ve probably never heard before! Watch his #Winkfie ? and find out.”

Even though Sunil Narine caught the eyeballs with his flamboyant batting he had a mediocre outing with the ball in IPL 10 as he managed to scalp only 10 wickets from 16 games which is pretty poor considering his standards. With a modified bowling action, he doesn’t quite look the same bowler as he once used to be.
