Andre Russell has become a household name in India in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) edition. He has literally tonked the ball with utter disdain while playing for the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in almost all the matches. Out of the five wins registered by the team, Russell has won four Man of the Match awards and the latest one on Sunday will be the special one for him.
Russell smashed 80 runs off just 40 balls against the Mumbai Indians (MI) to help his team stay alive in the tournament. By the time, he received the Man of the Match award, the Jamaican’s birthday had already started and he is busy celebrating it on Monday. His wife Jassym Lora also posted a wonderful birthday message for him and blessed him with the wishes and then gifted him a new pair of shoes which could also be used as slippers.
“Oh my sweet husband, I’m not just wishing for you to have a great birthday, I’m praying that you’re blessed with your heart’s desires.! Happy birthday Mi Amor! #happybirthdayhusband,” Lora wrote on her official Twitter handle.
Russell loves the gift
Jassym Lora’s lovely gift made Andre Russell’s day, rather he was overwhelmed after the surprise and started dancing. The video was posted by the man himself and thanked his wife for the amazing gift. “Thanks babes loving #mybirthdaygift @jassymloraru,” the video caption read.

Russell, as far as his on-field heroics are concerned, is in the best possible space this season and is giving his best in every game. He has so far amassed 486 runs in 11 innings at a strike-rate of 207.69 and a fantastic average of close to 70 which is amazing consistency. KKR will be hoping that he continues in the same vein and help them to qualify for the playoffs.
