The swashbuckling Caribbean all-rounder, Andre Russell has proved to be a valuable asset for his side, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) in recent times. Russell celebrated his 30th birthday on Sunday (April 29). Soon after, he posted a snap on social media of a luxurious car he’s received as a birthday present.
The West Indian has been a part of the Shah Rukh Khan-owned IPL franchise since 2014. He has proved himself to be worthy for his side being able to hit quickfire knocks to aid his team down the order. He also possesses a knack for breaking through crucial partnerships and scalping major wickets with his pace bowling skills. Recently, he made significant contributions in KKR’s victory over the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in Bengaluru.
Russell gets Mercedes as birthday present
He shared a picture of a lavish Mercedes sedan on his Instagram account. The all-rounder captioned it as “Birthday present just on time!”
The stunning car seems to be a befitting birthday gift for a stylish player like Russell. It seems like the cricketer had a gala time on his birthday with a cake-smear and celebration with his KKR teammates, Nitish Rana, Kuldeep Yadav and Robin Uthappa after their victory against the RCB.
Here’s what Russell posted on Instagram:
He kicked off his birthday celebrations in style during the KKR versus RCB match at the Chinnaswamy Stadium. Although he was unlucky with the bat and had to depart for a golden duck in the second innings of the game, his bowling was impeccable. He scalped the wickets of Brendon McCullum and Manan Vohra in quick succession, followed by another wicket in the form of Mandeep Singh. With bowling figures of 3-0-31-3, he was instrumental in KKR’s win.
The team got to its second win against the RCB side in IPL 2018, riding on some smash-hit batting from Chris Lynn. Faced with a target of 176 runs on a track that offered turn, KKR made good use of the sloppy fielding on RCB’s part, which included a number of dropped catches. The Dinesh Karthik-led side eventually won by 6 wickets, with 5 balls to spare.
