The West Indian all-rounder has been in sublime form since the beginning of the 11th edition of the IPL. Andre Russell today played another sensational inning for the Kolkata Knight Riders scoring 42 of just 12 balls. Russell, in the second game for the KKR this season played an explosive inning of 88 in just 36 balls.
This KKR Knight has been the most important player so far this season for the Kolkata Knight Riders. When Andre arrived at the crease, KKR were 113-4 with skipper Dinesh Karthik back to the pavilion in the 14th over. Nitish Rana on the other side had held his end and was playing beautifully; KKR needed a partnership to end the inning well. But, Bulky Dre Russ had some other plans in his mind.
Russell faced a total of 12 balls scoring mammoth 42 runs smashing half of the deliveries he faced out of the park for six. He hit Shami for 3 sixes in an over with one of the sixes going as far as 102 meters.
Here’s how cricketers reacted to his innings.
See, those big muscles on Andre Russell are not for show.#IPl

Gayle, Bravo, Narine, Russell…… these players from the Caribbean bring a very special flavour to the #IPL
