A little grip from UAE wickets will help Narine- Gambhir
Gambhir, who has won the IPL twice with KKR couldn’t have done that without Narine’s services. Sunil Narine too reinvented himself under Gambhir. From being promoted as an opener and bowling in powerplays Gambhir helped Narine grow as a complete T20 player.
In the latest episode of Cricket Connected Gambhir discussed how the UAE conditions would help Sunil Narine. During the discussion, Gambhir said, “For me, the most important thing is that when Sunil Narine is hiding the ball during his run-up, it will increase the difficulties for the batsmen. It will be difficult to find which ball will go away and which ball will come in. Because the later you see the ball in the hand, the more difficult it is for the batsmen,”
It is to be noted that Sunil Narine has been in tremendous form for the Trinbago Knight Riders in the ongoing season of the Caribbean Premier League.
