Narine was previously with the Lahore Qalandars team and ahead of the PSL 2019, he was traded into the Quetta Gladiators side. Apart from Narine, Gladiators have services of Fawad Ahmed, Mohammad Nawaz, and Mohammad Asghar in their spin department.
However, Narine has been quite handy with the bat as well in T20 cricket and often doubles up as an opener. Meanwhile, leg-spinner Max Waller has been named as his cover. Gladiators coach Moin Khan is hoping that Narine will recover soon. “Obviously, you cannot get like for like replacement of a big player like Narine but we have drafted in Waller and we are confident that he will add value to our team,” Khan was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.
