Narine won’t be added to T20 World Cup squad despite IPL form, Pollard confirms

News

The West Indies captain, meanwhile, hopes to have “a fit Andre Russell” during the tournament

Sunil Narine produced one of the IPL’s best-ever individual performances in Monday’s eliminator but West Indies will resist the temptation to parachute him into their squad for the upcoming men’s T20 World Cup ahead of the ICC’s deadline on Friday.

Narine took 4 for 21 – including the wickets of Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Glenn Maxwell – to restrict Royal Challengers Bangalore to 138 for 7 in Sharjah, before hitting the first three legal balls he faced for six as a pinch-hitting No. 5 to ensure Kolkata Knight Riders’ progress to the second Qualifier against Delhi Capitals on Wednesday. Since the IPL’s resumption in the UAE, he has taken 11 wickets in eight matches, conceding 6.12 runs per over.
