    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

    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.

    To make 42 runs by the 4th over is quite remarkable.

    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 .

    Commentators saying how did KKR decide to open with them and was it down to the tactical genius that is Gautam Gambhir? It's almost as if the Big Bash and PSL didn't exist and they just threw him up at the top with no experience.

    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
    http://www.espncricinfo.com/magazine...y/1098038.html

    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.
