Something special was seen in Eden Gardens on Tuesday. 15 years after his debut in first-class cricket, Sunil Narine scored the first century of his career at the age of 35 years and 326 days. This century came in 49 balls for Kolkata Knight Riders against Rajasthan Royals. The West Indies all-rounder, who has been promoted to the upper order, hit 13 fours and six sixes in his innings of 109 runs in 56 balls. There was a happy reaction on this century from Kolkata Knight Riders team owner Shahrukh Khan.

Kolkata Knight Riders mentor Gautam Gambhir has been really influential in Narine's rise. During his tenure as IPL captain, Gambhir used Narine as a pinch-hitter at the top of the order. Former India and CSK star wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel praised Gambhir for giving Narine a new role.

“When Gautam Gambhir was the captain of KKR, he was absolutely sure that Sunil Narine was the kind of player who could win them matches if he opened the batting. He came back to KKR and did the same. A lot of things make the difference.” Knowing that you have someone supporting you allows you to bat with confidence. There is no doubt that if you score 85 runs off 39 balls and it seems like every second ball there may be a four or a six. Exciting, Parthiv Patel said as quoted by Jio Cinema.
