Twitter Heaped Praises On Fallen Hero Andre Russell’s Power Hitting

Entertainment in IPL comes in various shapes and sizes and since we are talking about sizes, let’s talk about the colossal show that was put up by the monstrous Andre Russell against Chennai Super Kings after an unexpected landslide in the Kolkata ranks.

Chasing a mammoth total of 221 that featured some relentless clobbering from Faf Du Plessis and a couple of breezy cameos from Moeen Ali and MS Dhoni, Kolkata was jolted to a rude awakening, thanks to a magical spell from Deepak Chahar.

They lost half of their side within just 31 runs, hinting at an infamous crumble keeping in mind the woeful form of Dinesh Karthik and Andre Russell.

The big man from Jamaica, who has already taken a boatload of criticism for the last couple of seasons did manage to garner the traction in the preceding game. However, he couldn’t finish it.

Today when Kolkata was standing in front of an impending doom, the big man opened up his blade his stunning fashion. Taking every single bowler for a toss in the most dynamic fashion, Russell whacked and smacked the cherry into all corners of the park.

He smoked the second fastest half-century of this year’s IPL as he smashed his way to 50 with a titanic strike that sailed into the stands over the long-off boundary.

Before Curran could finally dislodge his timbre, he managed to amass a brilliant 54 from 22 balls and craft an industrious partnership that did hint at a comeback from KKR.

Twitter didnt fail to laud the return of their hero as his innings would instil hopes in the hearts of the KKR fans in the midst of a incessant receding tailspin that has failed to see any light at the end of the tunnel.
