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

He would play as our opener if he was on our team. He looks better than any of our batsmen.

A much improved batsmen a very clean striker of the ball and is playing very good cricket shots. Seems very calm and cool at the crease as well. Lahore should use him as a pinch hitter.

It's called the "Flamingo Pull". My favorite shot along with the backfoot cover-drive.

He can smash when in form.
I am not one of you. I never was. I am not one of them either.

Really like this guy he is a really good hitter he should bat at 5 ahead of elliot and rizwan

Been the most reliable "tailender" in years. It's great to see him play better than 80% of KK's batsmen.

Its good for WI as well.

Looks a different player with the bat this season.

Wow. Narine has really re-invented himself as a T20 opener/slogger.
To make 42 runs by the 4th over is quite remarkable.

If West Indies can put up their mind properly they can still form a decent LOI International Team (and even Test Team after that!)

The guy is so calm and relaxed and he does not care of any bowler. He acts like he is playing in the park

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.

Wow how on earth did this guy reinvent himself as a batsman? Always thought he was a typical tailender.

Good for WI , they should also try him as a opener.

Another quality innings. Excluding Sharjeel, he is probably better than any LOI opener in Pakistan at the moment.

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 .

Narine made batting look so easy on a pitch where greats such as Gayle, Kohli and De Villiers struggled and got single digit scores
