Watch: Sunil Narine does a rare celebration after dismissing Ruturaj Gaikwad


Sunil Narine has a reputation as one of the most composed players in the IPL. Cricket is a very emotional sport, and it's not uncommon to see players go far beyond their comfort zones to commemorate special occasions.

It often results in heated debates between the two players, but that's par for the course in this game. Sunil Narine, on the other hand, is never seen participating in any of them. He's typically very focused on the game, and this is the first time I've ever seen him chuckle in his whole career.

In order to express their feelings, individuals can sometimes go to extremes - something they would never do in a normal setting, like what Sunil Narine did in the final of the IPL between CSK and KKR tonight. In this season, Sunil Narine stood out for all the right reasons. After a few seasons of inconsistent performance, he seems to have discovered an answer with his most recent move, which is as basic as it gets. In both bowling and batting, Narine has been a key member of the Kolkata Knight Riders this season.

As one of Kolkata Knight Riders' top wicket-takers this season, he's also shown to be very useful with the bat, popping up with cameo knocks and smashing it for four when needed.

However, it's what Sunil Narine did tonight that's making news. When Sunil Narine got rid of Ruturaj Gaikwad in the current final, he rejoiced wildly. The fact that he is celebrating his wickets is out of character for him. It only goes to demonstrate how much he values this game and that particular wicket.
