Two of the unseen pictures of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) spinners were shared on Twitter. On the occasion of Children's day, the pictures were from their childhood.

Knight Riders' official Twitter account was running a contest #GuessTheKnight in which fans had to answer who is in the picture shared by them. It wasn't easy as the picture was from their younger days. But a regular cricket follower would have easily got it right.

Sharing the first picture, they wrote, "KKR shared the photograph with the message, “Had a fanboy moment with the Test veteran Jimmy Anderson years ago. Now he has already played against him in Tests! " 

Well, it was an easy one. Indian spinner Kuldeep Yadav was seen posing with the England star pacer James Anderson. 

The second picture was of a kid who was holding a bat waiting for the ball to be thrown at him. The left-hander was Sunil Narine. " #GuessTheKnight: Let the guessing games begin! Hint: He bats with his left, and bowls with the right hand. Don’t let him trick you," their caption read.

Narine and Kuldeep are the backbones of the KKR side. While the West Indies spinner is successful with the ball and bat both, Yadav keeps the batsmen confused with his chinaman.
