Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) star all-rounder Sunil Narine recreated a reel trend which originally went viral from a movie scene, to highlight his staggering numbers of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 season.

Following Rajasthan Royals' (RR) narrow loss against Delhi Capitals (DC) the other night, Kolkata Knight Riders moved to the top of the IPL 2024 points table.

While a lot of things went right for KKR this year, one of the key contributions came from Sunil Narine's all-round prowess.

Narine has performed extraordinarily well as an opener as well as KKR's leading spinner. And to highlight his achievements from this season, the KKR social media team made Sunil Narine recreate a viral reel trend.

The viral reel featured a South Indian actor who also drew a close resemblance to Narine, in which he poses without any expressions.

And Sunil Narine, best known for his straight face, recreated the trend perfectly before breaking the character towards the end to don a huge smile.

The viral video highlighted Narine's 461 runs in the IPL 2024 season, which contained 34 sixes. Besides, the West Indies legend also clipped 14 wickets with a 6.6 economy, and as a result, KKR is comfortably seated at the top of the points table.

Needless to say, the recreation of the viral reel, which features a distinctive head nod and expression, quickly gained traction on social media platforms. It rightly served the purpose of increasing KKR's social media engagement.

That being said, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) still have three games left on the schedule, with Mumbai Indians being their forthcoming challenge. And to ensure a top-two finish, KKR cannot let their guard down anytime soon.
