IPL 2023, Sunil Narine | Darren Ganga said, maybe Narine can benefit from changing the franchise

Mumbai: Former West Indies captain Daren Ganga believes that Sunil Narine is still a strong player but Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) are under pressure due to not achieving much success. He also said that changing the franchise could give the Caribbean spinner, who is struggling with poor form, a chance to freshen up. KKR’s young spinners like Varun Chakravarthy (17 wickets in 11 matches) and Suyash Sharma (10 wickets in eight matches) have been successful in this IPL but Narine has struggled with the new bowling action and managed only seven wickets in 11 matches. Have found The 34-year-old Narine has been a part of the two-time champions since IPL 2012. Ganga (Daren Ganga) said on the sidelines of ‘Cricwiz’ program, “He had to face big challenges in making changes in his action.” He had to do this constantly, he was called and warned several times. Due to this he had to stay out of international cricket. He said, “But for me Sunil Narine is still a great player, maybe his change of franchise will freshen him up, who knows?” Also read Ganga (Daren Ganga) said that Narine has been a part of the XI with the presence of three spinners and it is not necessary that every bowler is effective in all the matches. Ganga also feels that India and Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma, who has been struggling with poor form in the current IPL season, would benefit from taking a break ahead of the World Test Championship (WTC) final. In the ongoing IPL season, Rohit has scored just 191 runs in 11 matches with one fifty, raising concerns about his form ahead of the title clash against Australia at The Oval from June 7-11. Ganga said, “There is no doubt that he is a class player. We have seen great players in the past who went through a bad phase, recently Virat Kohli was facing a bad run of form and had to go through a tough phase. After that he found form and scored runs. “Rohit is also going through a similar situation where he is playing a lot of cricket, sometimes as a player you can get tired of the responsibilities you get as a captain,” he said. Ganga said that being away from cricket for a short period of time would help Rohit to be fresh for the challenges ahead. Apart from the WTC final, Rohit will also captain India in the World Cup to be held at home later this year. Ganga said, “You must have heard that Sunil Gavaskar advised to take a break and refresh the mind before the World Test Championship – this could be a good option for him.” (agency)
