New Delhi: It finally happened in the Indian Premier League (IPL). It had happened in the Big Bash League (BBL) down under, and today fans accepted it.

On Thursday, Sunil Narine the batsman opened the innings for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in their IPL match against Kings XI Punjab. And the West Indian was making fun of bowlers, like Chris Lynn did some days back.

During his 18-ball knock, the left-handed batsman hit three sixes and four fours. And in their social media post of the video, the IPL playfully claimed that Narine was actually wearing Lynn's mask.

Here's the VIDEO

Chasing to KXIP's 170, KKR got off the rollicking start with openers Narine and Gautam Gambhir putting up 76 runs for the first wicket inside sixth wicket.

The hosts won the match by eight wickets with 21 balls remaining in the match. This was KKR's eighth successive win over their rivals since 2011.

Narine was adjudged the Man of the Match for his overall performance. Earlier in the day, he produced a miserly spell of four overs, conceding 19 runs while also taking a wicket.
