West Indies superstar Andre Russell did the unthinkable in the Indian Premier League (IPL) clash between Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore to power his side to victory. The intimidating figure of Russell stood solid as a rock on the crease and smashed an incredible 13-ball 48 to pulverize the RCB into smithereens.
Looking well set to grab their first win of the tournament, RCB were left stunned by the pyrotechnics that ensued from Russell’s bat as he struck an insane 47 runs in the last 9 deliveries he faced. 7 sixes and a solitary four read Russell’s boundary count, depicting the sheer amount of muscle he possesses.
The 30-year-old’s outclass innings probably ranks among the greatest comebacks witnessed in T20 cricket, and spells trouble for the rest of the opponents. In the midst of a supreme run of form, it seems nothing can go wrong for the big guy.
