The Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) have lost the top position on the points table after losing comprehensively against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK). The winning side tamed the KKR batting and did not allow anyone to free arms during their quiet batting innings.
Andre Russell scored yet another 50 in this year’s IPL as he helped KKR get to a rather competitive total of 108. Had it not been for his sluggish innings, the side would have been bowled out below the score of 70.
West Indian batting legend Brian Lara was highly impressed with the way Russell changed his role for the sake of taking his team to a respectable total. He said that the master blaster played a responsible innings according to the team’s requirements which was way off his natural style of play.
