KKR vs RCB Man of the Match, a mystery spinner, caught the West Indies selectors’ attention by taking all ten wickets in a trial match and received a call up to the Trinidad & Tobago squad in January 2009. He may not have accomplished that in international cricket , but every time Narine came to bowl, he looked like taking a wicket. His bag of tricks – an assortment of carrom balls, knuckle balls and skidders – led West Indies to the World T20 title in 2012 – the first time they claimed a World trophy since 1979.

He was one of the chief architects of Kolkata Knight Riders’ two title victories in 2012 and 2014 – well worth the investment they put in him. He was bought at US $700,000 in 2012, promptly became the Man of the Tournament and has been retained by the franchise ever since. Narine once bowled more overs than runs conceded in a Twenty20 match, with 21 dot balls out of 24 in the Caribbean Premier League 2014. After nearly 650 overs, he went into IPL 2016 with 216 wickets at an economy rate of 5.52. Such highs were beyond him in the Test arena though; his last match came in December 2013 and his bowling average remains a dismal 40.52.

Narine was lost to international cricket for over a year, but he returned to the West Indies side in November 2015 and ran into trouble with his action again. This time it was the ICC who were on his tail and he was subsequently suspended from bowling in international cricket. He was ranked the No. 1 bowler in T20Is when he was picked for the World T20 in 2016, but withdrew from the tournament to focus on his rehabilitation.
