Sunil was born in Arima of Trinidad and Tobago on May 26, 1988, to a restaurant’s taxi driver Shadeed Narine. His father named him Sunil because he was the fan of great Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar. He was such a die-hard fan of Sunil that he also wanted to name her daughter Sunili because of him but it was his wife Christina who refused to do so.
