In an incredible exhibition of spin bowling, seasoned spinner Sunil Narine took seven wickets in seven overs without giving up a run. Narine bowled seven debut overs and took seven wickets while representing Queen’s Park Cricket Club I in the T&T Cricket Board Premiership Division I match against Clarke Road United at the Queen’s Park Oval in St. Clair, Port-of-Spain.

With 31 wickets, including four back-to-back five-wicket hauls in his last three games, Sunil Narine appears to be in excellent shape going into the IPL 2023. Queen’s Park made the decision to bowl on a used surface initially in the game.

Before to Sunil Narine’s stunning session, Jon Russ Jaggesar and Sion Hacket dismissed the top three batsmen for Clarke Road. Narine’s ferocious spell allowed him to limit the opposition to only 76 runs in just 24 overs. Queen’s Park declared after scoring a total of 268 for 3 in response. It’s interesting to note that Narine was scheduled to leave for India with his teammates from KKR, but his flight was delayed, thus he ended up playing in the game.

IPL 2023: Sunil Narine All Set To Turn Up The Heat

On April 1, Kolkata Knight Riders will take on Punjab Kings in a matchup that will serve as the opening game of their IPL 2023 season. The injury to skipper Shreyas Iyer has already inflicted a devastating blow on the team that Shah Rukh Khan co-owns. Narine may be in the running to lead KKR if Iyer is sidelined for the IPL 2023 season, according to sources, but there has been no official confirmation of this.

The spell will be a big confidence booster for a boost for Sunil Narine personally given his appalling tenure as captain of the Abu Dhabi Knight Riders in the ILT20, during which time the team won only one game out of a possible ten in league play.

Narine will be optimistic about performing well in the IPL 2023, but it will be interesting to watch how he does with the bat as well. He had a difficult time leading the Abu Dhabi Knight Riders in the first ILT20, a T20 league of cricket.
