Sunil Narine With His Crafty Spell Against DC Surpasses Lasith Malinga's Record In IPL

Kolkata (West Bengal) [India]: Kolkata Knight Riders eclipsed Lasith Malinga's record for most wickets at a particular venue in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Monday.

Narine impressed with the ball during KKR's win over Delhi Capitals with figures of 1/24 in his four-over spell.

He claimed Axar Patel's wicket in the first innings which marked his 69th wicket at the iconic Eden Gardens in the IPL which is most by a bowler at a particular venue in the cash-rich league.

Veteran spinner Amit Mishra holds the third spot with 58 wickets at Delhi. Former Royal Challengers Bengaluru star spinner Yuzvendra Chahal is in the fourth spot with 52 wickets at Bengaluru. Former India spinner Harbhajan Singh features in the fifth place with 49 scalps at Wankhede.

Apart from his contribution with the ball, Narine scored 15 runs in 10 deliveries which was laced with three boundaries in KKR's pursuit of 154.

It turned out to be a comfortable chase for KKR as they hardly broke a sweat and clinched a 7-wicket win.
