    Sunil Narine - The batsman

    How stylish does he look these days?

    Seems like a mix of Brian Lara, Gary Sobers and Gordon Greenidge. Has mastered the Caribbean-style pull shot with one leg in the air.

    Would love to see Lahore give him a run up the order at some point, like Melbourne.

    For me, his batting has been one of the highlights of this otherwise dour PSL 2.

    top order is fine I guess they can't drop any of Roy, McCullum, Fakhar and Umar, after that Rizwan is an accumulator at 5, so 6 could be perfect for Narine

    Lahore's strongest batting line up would be:

    Roy
    McCullum
    Fakhar
    Delport
    Narine
    Rizwan
    Tanvir

    if half of them fire, 180 would be easy to get

    Sunil has been a success purely because he's caught opposition by surprise. Now that teams will expect him, they will throw a barrage of fast short deliveries and full length and he will be caught in the crease. He just stands and delivers and teams are currently serving him up good length deliveries. Won't work for long. ANyway good move from KKR.

    I have been saying opening is a joke , I dont rate any of the openers in last 10 years or so unless they can score at SR of more than 120 .
    Most of them are not half as good as their stats suggest cos they do not have a game outside the field restrictions . Narine is though one of the better no8's and a gifted timer , could easily average 35+ with a 100+ sr if he starts opening for WI .

    He seems smart. He may have known that he may not have that old magic in his bowling with his new bowling action, hence worked on his batting as well, so that he is more valuable to his team. Our players must pay heed, especially our tailenders.

    Shows really how poor Pakistani openers are.

    If a tailender can reinvent himself to become a semi-reliant pinch hitter, one must wonder what the entirety of the Pakistani batting stocks are doing that they struggle to bat to the pace of modern standards?

    What Narine tells us about T20 hitting
    Prior to this year in his entire T20 career Narine had scored 382 runs in 195 games - fewer than two runs per match and had never batted in the top 4.

    Gun innings today. Guided his team to victory with his 79 chasing 153. Has been going strength to strength wrt to his batting. Really worked on it in IPL season. Was always a good timer of the ball.

    Unlike other bowlers who had been suspected for chucking he didn't cry and moan or come up with lies about some freak accident, worked on other aspects of his cricketing game and is still a world class prospect.

    Shocking how he has shaped himself into a modern t20 batsman. Lahore should defiantly ustilse him better:

    Roy
    McCullum
    Zaman
    Umar akmal
    Deport
    Narine
    Rizwan

    Lahore more importantly need to find some decent pacers, if I was them I'd look to get Woakes and Willy from England.

    Given I found out that before my time that Malik was a pure spinner who converted himself into a batting allrounder, I was not that surprised and same for Ashwin as they had some batting talent to be able to onvert themselves into allrounders; Darren Sammy too. I was shocked to see Narine become a devastating T20 opener, never in my mind did I think he would change himself to become one.

    it actually tells more about how easy it is to open these days , its not just T20s . Zero pressure , flat pitches with no assistance for pace bowlers and power plays .

    Meh... Even his little cameo today was a chancy and pure hackish knock. Akhtar's knock was better and he's also better hitter than him.

    Rather open with Akhtar and Fakhar. Narine should bat at 7-8

    Against bowlers like Amir and Hasan, Narine will be going back to the pavilion in the first or second over.
    Akhtar has higher ceiling, he's more powerful, better timer of the ball too.

    Against bowlers like Amir and Hasan, Narine will be going back to the pavilion in the first or second over.
    Akhtar has higher ceiling, he's more powerful, better timer of the ball too.
    Why expose akhtar to the new ball?

    Yes no need for that...
    He is better at 4 or 5 and maybe 3 if opening partnerships is good

    Wherever he plays there's always risk involved he's a hit or miss player. But if he hits some boundaries early on, there will be no pressure on Fakhar, he's the best batsman of the team he also needs some support to keep the score moving quickly otherwise all the pressure will be on him Baz is a dud with the bat in the PSL, and the less said about Umar and Riz, the better.

    Forget Amir or Hasan, Shinwari is enough for this hack masta. Golden duck for the pinch hitter.

    Really loves batting on these wickets it seems. Plays with a lot of flair too. Natural clean striker of the ball like Bhaju, Moeen Ali, Imran Gul, Southee, Stars, Johnson etc

    Amazing hitters a lot of these bowlers.

    Akmal has two of the best centuries in the history of the game against India. An Indian fan mocking Akmal is hilarious.

    Didn't watch any of the innings, but both McCullum and Narine played at SRs exceeding 150 today. Fawad Rana must be tearing his hair out.

    He is useful for team. He does not waste balls , so does not cost the team much. Thus its always a win win situation .

    That was what I was thinking as well. Pitches in IPL might be better for batting but a big jump in performance for these 2 for sure

    Narine is such an intelligent man. He didn't reveal his batting talents to PSL so that to stay away from knockouts took place in Pakistan. Now he is showing his talents in the best league so that everyone can watch him..well played man..he had great net practice in psl..

    Baz's innings was streaky. HE just lucked his way out. Narine was feeding on brainless bowling of Mark wood. Moment Umesh was on fear factor came in. He got cleaned up.

    The popular opinion till less than a year back was that this “tailender” was better than Pak openers. Some 5-6 months where your team has played well (even if we ignore the NZ drubbing (what was it 30/8 in 27 overs?)) and look at your arrogance. Show some respect dude. Narine is a decent hitter. Especially deserves respect for reinventing his batting when he saw that he could get banned due to chucking. Never that easy to do at a Global stage.

    If a tailender can reinvent himself to become a semi-reliant pinch hitter, one must wonder what the entirety of the Pakistani batting stocks are doing that they struggle to bat to the pace of modern standards?

    Mark Wood doesn't play for RCB.

    He actually hit Woakes (20 off 6) and Sundar (18 off 5) off 2 consecutive overs. That's how he got 38 runs off 11 deliveries. Both are decently good bowlers.

    I must have missed the post where I said 'Narine is better than our openers'. Narine was a dud when he played in PSL, which I watched and followed. He was one of the main reasons Lahore Qalandars crashed and burned throughout the campaign. I respect him because he is a world-class bowler who I enjoy watching bowl, but I have no love for him as a batsman.
