But Test cricket remained a bit of a puzzle. However, like so many others from West Indies, Narine decided to give preference to leagues rather than his national team.

Sunil Narine’s International Debut: Narine was brought into the West Indies team during their ODI series on the 2011 tour of India. He was immediately seen as a bowler who could fox the batsmen with his variations. His first international wicket was none other than Virat Kohli.
Sunil Narine’s Test Record: The Trinidadian wasn’t as effective in Tests as he was in limited-overs cricket. The reason was simple – batsmen weren’t obliged to go after him in the longest format as they were in the shorter ones. Still, there was potential in him but his growing focus on T20 leagues cut short his Test career.
Sunil Narine’s ODI Record: Narine was proving to be a very useful bowler in ODI cricket. His record shows how good he was – 92 wickets in 65 matches. But here too, his career was cut short by the growing demand for him in T20 leagues.
Sunil Narine’s T20 Record: Narine was at his best in T20 cricket and troubled the batsmen a lot. He played a key role in the West Indian triumph in World T20s. Over the years, a change in his action made him a completely different type of bowler. He hasn’t recovered from the action change.
Sunil Narine’s IPL Record: IPL turned Narine into a global superstar. After catching the eye of the world playing for Trinidad and Tobago and West Indies, he was bought by KKR. The team reaped huge rewards for their choice as the tweaker wreaked havoc in his first three seasons. But from 2015 onwards, after the action changed, he became a very innocuous bowler who had to rely on his lower-order batting more and more.
