“Comeback King"-A short-film by KKR on Sunil Narine’s incredible journey as a cricketer
 
Kolkata, It's been almost a decade of Sunil Narine being an integral part of the success

of Kolkata Knight Riders.

"The King", as he is known among his teammates, has churned out some truly memorable performances since 2012.

Each time doubts shrouded his pathway, he came out more resilient than before and continued weaving his magic with the Knight Riders.

The short film titled ‘Comeback King’ released by KKR, throws light on Narine's journey as a

cricketer which has had its fair share of opportunities and challenges handled with aplomb by the Caribbean superstar. From being reported for suspect bowling action in 2014 during the Champions League T20, which put his entire career at stake, to experiencing a similar incident in IPL 2020 -

Narine's journey in cricket has been nothing less than a rollercoaster ride.

"It (being called for illegal bowling action in 2020) was tough! But at the end of the day, cricket was never easy for me. I had to work for everything I have. So, it was just like another stepping stone

where I had to dig deep, work hard and come out on top,", said Sunil Narine.

“The outcome was as rewarding as it could get, Narine continued his wizardry despite all the odds. "There are very few, if any, who have had to modify their action, come back and be as effective. In

fact, I think he has been more effective!", says Venky Mysore MD & CEO, KKR

“It was a difficult phase for him, and he has overcome a lot (in his career). Perhaps, the officials haven't understood the ramifications of the decisions that they were putting down on paper, it had a significant impact on Sunil”, says, Brendon McCullum, Head Coach, KKR.

Narine's journey keeps getting better and his bond with KKR stronger with each passing year!

"There's no other place I'd like to be than KKR because I have played all my cricket here and

I would love to continue representing the franchise. It's a home away from home, my second home.

So, I hope it can continue,” added Narine.
