Twitter in awe as Sunil Narine's all-round show lights CPL 2020
Sunil Narine produced an all-round show as Trinbago Knight Riders started their Caribbean Premier League campaign in style, winning their opening game against Guyana Amazon Warriors by four wickets in a rain-fit fixture.
After the match was reduced to 17 overs, Narine, the most successful bowler of the evening, picked two wickets while conceding 19 runs at an economy of just 4.80. His victims were the likes of Chandrapaul Hemraj and Ross Taylor, and riding on the back of Shimron Hetmyer's unbeaten 63 off 44, the Warriors posted 114/5.
With the bat, Narine scored a quick-fire half-century in 27 deliveries and his effort was enough to bring the required run rate down to just seven. The West Indies all-rounder was eventually dismissed by Imran Tahir in the final delivery of the 11th over. Darren Bravo then played his part, scoring 30 from 27 balls.
The Knight Riders had an extensively slow start as the Amazon Warriors restricted them to just nine off the first three overs. However, after Lendl Simmons was dismissed, Colin Munro broke the shackles and a quickfire 17 off just seven deliveries set the momentum for Knight Riders as they cruised to a four-wicket victory.
With the domestic cricket back, cricket fans were duly entertained by a Sunil Narine show, and this is how they are reacting to it:
