Sunil Narine Keeps the Door Open for West Indies Comeback

Just days after stating he would be watching the upcoming T20 World Cup “from home”, Sunil Narine has left the door open for a potential return to international cricket.

Speaking to renowned broadcaster Harsha Bhogle after his sensational 49-ball hundred against the Rajasthan Royals, the KKR all-rounder said, “It is what it is but we will have to see what the future holds.” This cryptic response has sparked renewed hope among West Indies fans that they could see the maverick spinner don the national colors once again.

In fact, current Windies captain Rovman Powell revealed he has been actively trying to convince Narine to end his international retirement. “For the last 12 months, I have been whispering in his ears,” Powell said, “but he’s blocked out everyone.” Powell even enlisted the help of experienced campaigners like Kieron Pollard and Nicholas Pooran in a bid to sway Narine’s decision.

With the T20 World Cup squad selection looming, Powell remains hopeful that the West Indies team management can “crack Narine’s skull” and convince the 35-year-old to make a sensational comeback. Narine’s proven match-winning abilities in the IPL and other T20 leagues around the world make him a tantalizing prospect for a Windies side looking to regain their T20 supremacy on the global stage. The allrounder’s response has certainly left fans and experts alike eagerly awaiting developments in the coming weeks.
