JIO Cinema IPL expert Morgan said that Sunil Narayan’s batting idol since childhood is Brian Lara. Along with this, he also said that T20 specialist Sunil was a batsman in his younger days who could bowl a little seam. But eventually, he decided to become a spinner who could bat a bit.

With time, he decided to become a spinner developed his own magic balls, and worked hard on them. But he gets a lot of pleasure from his batting. His hero since childhood was Brian Lara, he will be happy with some of the shots played by Sunil Narine this evening.”
