Andre Russell bludgeoned the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) bowlers to every corner of the stadium on 21st April 2021. In a knock that lasted 22 deliveries, Russell pounded his way to 54. His knock was studded with 3 fours and 6 humongous sixes.

But then, just when it looked as if Russell would continue to hammer the Chennai outfit and take the Kolkata side to an improbable victory, a clever delivery from Sam Curran ended his stay in the middle.

Curran bowled a delivery on Russell’s legs, and the Kolkata willow wielder thought that the ball will not hit the stumps, and he did not offer any shot. But then, the ball thudded onto Russell’s leg stump, and the West Indian walked back after embellishing the sky with his thunderous shots.

Several fans react on Twitter regarding Andre Russell’s dismissal

After he was dismissed, Russell was seen sitting on the stairs in a distraught condition. He had not removed his helmet, pads, and gloves even after getting out. And, this image of Russell has melted several hearts.

While one fan lauded Andre Russell for the way he batted, another felt that cricket is more than just a game. Yet another fan opined that every cricket lover will surely feel sad after seeing Russell in this state. Another fan stated that Russell had made the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) proud after playing such a splendid innings. And finally, yet another user stated that Russell is a man with a heart of gold.

The Chennai Super Kings beat the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in a cliffhanger of an encounter at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The MS Dhoni-led side put on a humongous total of 220 runs on the board in their 20 overs. And in reply, in spite of the savage assault from Russell and a 34-ball 66* from Australian Pat Cummins, the Kolkata outfit was bowled out for a total of 202.

The Kolkata Knight Riders will next be seen on the field when they lock horns against the Rajasthan Royals (RR) outfit on 24th April 2021.
