<p>The KKR posted a video on their Instagram account of the Windies pair being greeted upon their return to the team.</p>
<p>The theme music for the video was the well-known Bollywood song Bade Miyan Chote Miyan.</p>
<p>In the video, Russell and Narine are greeted with the customary “gamcha” before striking a photo together. “From the Caribbean to Kolkata, the showstoppers are here!” KKR stated in their post.</p>
<p>Having played with KKR since 2012, Narine is one of the team’s veteran players. Together with them, he won the competition in 2012 and 2014, when Gautam Gambhir was their captain.</p>
<p>In his early years in the competition, Narine was well known for being a spinner who could change the course of a match. In his first year, he took 24 wickets; in his next two years, he took 22 and 21, respectively. Narine has taken 163 wickets in the IPL thus far in his career. The seasoned spinner has often shown that he is a terrifying batsman as well. In 162 games, he has amassed 1046 runs with a stellar strike rate of 159.69.</p>
<p>Since 2014, Russell has played a crucial role in the brand owned by Shah Rukh Khan. The all-rounder had his greatest season ever in 2019 and has often won games for KKR by himself.</p>
<p>Russell scored 510 runs in 14 games that year, setting some amazing records. He accomplished this with a remarkable strike rate of 204.81 and an amazing average of 56.66. Russell claimed a total of 11 wickets in the same season. In the IPL, the West Indies all-rounder has taken 96 wickets in addition to amassing 2262 runs.</p>
<p>Last season, KKR had a dismal performance, placing the team in ninth place.</p>
<p>Narine and Russell both had a lackluster season.</p>
<p>In contrast to Narine, who scored only 21 runs and claimed 11 wickets in the previous season, Russell amassed 227 runs while taking seven wickets.</p>
