Andre Russell, the name is now just like a thunderstorm for his opponents in IPL. KKR has him as their assets, who work as their savior. The West Indian has smashed all the matches except their last encounter with Rajasthan Royals. Till now he has scored 207 runs in just 77 balls. He has already smashed 22 sixes so far, and he will add more on this tournament.
Andre Russell against CSK in 2018 at Kolkata
Now let’s have a throwback from the previous season. Last time at Eden Garden, Russell had a marvelous inning against CSK. He came at no. 7 and boosted the team score to 202. On that match, He smashed 88 runs on just 36 balls. Was it insane? Well, it’s up to you, whatever you think it not only that he smashed 11 sixes and one four.h
So, you can calculate that he scored 70 runs from boundaries only. The same Russell is performing this season with the same passion. And tonight he will face the same opponent CSK. Can he repeat the same performance and help KKR to maintain no. 1 spot or CSK spinners will restrict him.
It must be a joke for all, but if I am there, I won’t make out other KKR batsmen, not to let Russell on the crease.
After some time we can find out if Russell will be a thunderstorm for CSK or Dhoni’s master plan will make him normal wind.
Oh yes, the match Russell smashed 88 runs, KKR was lost. Will this thing will repeat this time, or Russell will make a tsunami, which CSK can’t survive?
Watch the video before the match begins and refresh your memory with some snacks and drinks.
