0 LIKES UnLike praises Narine’s accuracy – Cricket News Update, after the 23-year-old’s devastating 4 for 15 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai brought the hosts team’s batting order crashing down, forcing them to concede
a 32-run defeat on May 16.
Narine, after a superb performance in the limited-overs series against, was picked up for $700,000 by the Kolkata Knight Riders this season, and has gone on to claim 21 wickets for them in the tournament so far. His performances are characteristic
of their economy, with his best being 5 for 19 in 4 overs against the Kings XI on April 15.
“If you look at his economy rate, he has been extremely accurate, almost like a (Lasith) Malinga for us. You don't want more than 10 an over from him,” observed Singh.
The Mumbai Indians’ most recent encounter with Narine’s spin resulted in a batting order collapse as they struggled and ultimately failed to chase a target of 141. The off-spinner began in spectacular fashion, claiming the wicket of veteran batsman Sachin
Tendulkar (27), who was unable to pick Narine’s off-break. The bowler followed that up with the wickets of Rohit Sharma,
Tendulkar’s individual score remained the highest on the Mumbai Indians’ side, and the middle and lower order were unable to stage a comeback, with the home team all out by the beginning of the last over, restricted to 108.

“When he came in at that stage he was too good for us. He's extremely accurate, doesn't give you much to drive … He's able to bowl an off break with two or three fingers,” the coach pointed out, adding that it was necessary to observe Narine consistently, and
play him off the wicket.
“We played him pretty well in Kolkata. It was no different to how we want to play him.”
The previous encounter between the two teams, at Eden Gardens in Kolkata, had resulted in the Mumbai Indians emerging victorious by 27 runs, largely owing to a stellar 109 by Narine had registered figures of 0 for 28, with the MI batsmen having
managed to keep him in check.
