Sunil Narine bowls another miserly spell in KKR vs LSG, concedes no boundary in 4 overs

In the era of T20s where bowlers going at 8 runs per over is considered a success, Sunil Narine's economy rate has never gone up to 8 in any edition of IPL he has played so far.

Kolkata Knight Riders all-rounder Sunil Narine on Sunday produced another fantastic bowling spell against Lucknow Super Giants. The Caribbean maestro gave away only 17 runs in his four overs. What was even more baffling is that Narine did not give away a single boundary in his spell, which is a rarity in T20 Cricket. However, Narine has always been one of the most economical bowlers of IPL, and it is no surprise that batters have found it difficult to go after Narine in all these years.

Narine the miserly spinner

In the era of T20s where bowlers going at 8 runs per over is considered a success, Sunil Narine’s economy rate has never gone up to 8 in any edition of IPL he has played so far. Yes, you read that right!

Stellar economy rate

Narine made his debut in IPL in 2012 and the highest economy rate he has had in a season has been 7.98 in 2023. It is a crazy stat for a bowler who has bowled inside powerplays and as well as in middle and death overs.

Narine leading unusual charts

Moreover, Narine is first in the list of bowlers to not have conceded a single boundary in his four overs. He has done it 14 times, and leads the charts jointly with Ravichandran Ashwin

Another economical spell on Monday

Narine on Sunday was equally economical, not giving LSG batters any room to hit him. The 17 runs he conceded came all in singles. It is astonishing to think he did not give away even 2s in his spell, let alone 4s and 6s. If Narine can maintain his economy rate this season as well, KKR will be in a much better place in IPL 2024.
