Twitter goes berserk as Chris Lynn and Sunil Narine send RCB bowlers on a leatherhunt

Lynn in action

It was Kolkata Knight Riders’ fourth opening combination of the season in the IPL. Like the first three, this too was a success, perhaps a bigger one. A new-look opening combination of Chris Lynn and Sunil Narine went on a record-breaking spree, rubbing salt in RCB’s wounds.

Chasing 159, the first three overs yielded 34, mainly due to Lynnsanity. But thereafter it was the Narine-show as the next two overs went for 51, with the Caribbean scoring 49 of those. The duo made an absolute mockery of the expected tricky chase, racking up 105 in the powerplays without the loss of any wicket. In the process, Sunil Narine also raced to joint-fastest fifty of IPL history, off just 15 balls. Incidentally, his was also quickest of the season, bettering Lynn’s effort (19 balls vs GL).
