KKR’s best batsman, Sunil Narine, slams first ever IPL ton & continues his golden run in IPL 2024

Prior to this scintillating century, the opener's highest ever T20 score was 85. 

Sunil Narine has done the unthinkable. The Kolkata Knight Riders spinner has become their first centurion for the franchise in the IPL 2024 season. The southpaw opener smashed a maiden IPL century in just 49 balls, which happens to be the joint fastest century by a KKR batter.

Sunil Narine: 3rd centurion for KKR

Interestingly, Sunil Narine is just the third player from the Kolkata Knight Riders to score a hundred in the IPL. The first was Brendon McCullum, who scored KKR and the IPL’s first-ever hundred in 2008 against the Royal Challengers Bangalore. The last season saw Venkatesh Iyer score their second-ever ton, and now Narine has joined the short and illustrious list.
