Sunil Narine is an integral part of Kolkata knight riders. He is always there when KKR needs him. He was retained by the franchise before the mega auction. Everyone knows his performance against RCB in the Knockout match he alone put the match in favor of KKR with both bat and ball. We hope this year also we can see his magic from him with the ball.
