Profile

Sunil Narine first grabbed eye balls when he bagged all ten wickets in a trial match and soon he was called up to the Trinidad and Tobago squad in 2009.

The right-arm off break bowler represented the West Indies Under-19 side and made his first-class debut against Leeward Islands. Despite a poor outing in his first match, he was included in the side for the inaugural Champions League T20 that was held in India in 2009. However, his breakthrough moment came in the 2011 edition of the Champions League where he performed brilliantly to scalp ten wickets at 10.50 and an economy rate of 4.37. He was finally rewarded with an ODI cap in 2011 against India in Ahmedabad and he performed decently on debut with figures of 2/34 from 10 overs.

Narine's high-arm bowling action is deceptive for batsmen, and with all the variations he possesses, he more often than not succeeds in bamboozling batsmen. The mystery spinner was signed up by Kolkata for the fifth edition of the Indian T20 League. In 2012 and he did extremely well in the tournament, ending up as the second-highest wicket-taker with 24 wickets, helping Kolkata win the title. Narine was one of just two players that Kolkata retained ahead of the 2014 auction. Playing in the Indian T20 League was a huge learning experience for the youngster and it also helped him fetch his Test debut, as he was quickly called up for West Indies' third Test against England, replacing injured Kemar Roach. He had a decent start to his Test career as he scalped a five-for in just his second Test, against New Zealand in Antigua and was named the Man of the Match with 8 wickets in the match. He endured a tough time on the 2012 Bangladesh tour and was dropped from the Test side. Shane Shillingford's rise has meant that he remains as the second-choice spinner in Tests. He however, remains an integral part of the limited overs side.
