With the tournament almost two weeks away, the West Indies stars have arrived in India to complete their quarantine formalities before beginning their practice for the season.
Speaking in a video shared by KKR, Suni Narine said it was great to be back. The spinner hopes the team have a better season this time around. With 7 wins in 14 games, KKR finished 5th in the points table last year and failed to make it to the playoffs.
"Whenever you think about the IPL, you think about India. So, it's great to be back. Hopefully, we can have a better season than last year. Keep supporting us. No matter the situation, we are going to go on there and try our best. Hopefully, this year is the year to bring back the title," Sunil Narine said.
The Kolkata Knight Riders welcomed Sunil Narine and Andre Russell with a tweet that read:
"The moment you've all been waiting for...The 2018 and 2019 MVP's are in the house! #ToofaniFans, excited to get this party started? @Russell12A @SunilPNarine74 #KKR #HaiTaiyaar #IPL2021."
