Sunil Narine gave glimpses of his ‘old mystery’ with the ball and then topped it up with three monster sixes as Kolkata Knight Riders’ four-wicket victory in an exciting ‘Eliminator’ dashed Virat Kohli’s dream of winning an IPL trophy while leading Royal Challengers Bangalore. KKR will now meet Delhi Capitals in the second Qualifier on Wednesday to decide Chennai Super Kings’ rivals for the title clash on October 15.
Narine, who had to remodel his action after coming under the scanner due to a suspect action multiple times, singlehandedly “eliminated” Royal Challengers Bangalore with bowling figures of 4 for 21.
