Andre Russell is in full form both in batting and bowling in IPL 2019. He has played 2 matches and has played outstanding innings in both matches. In first match he scored 49 runs in 19 balls against SRH which included 4 fours and 4 sixes. In today’s match against KXIP he scored 48 runs in 17 balls which included 3 fours and 5 sixes. 42 runs out of his 48 runs came through boundaries.
Russell was very lucky for himself and his team. He was bowled out by Mohammed Shami when his score was just 6 runs and his team score was only 161 runs. But he was very lucky as the ball was declared no ball because there were 6 fielders out of the circle during the power play more than the permitted 5 fielders. He went on to score 48 runs and helps his team to set the target of 219 for KXIP.
Apart from him Nitish Rana and Robin Uthappa also played a crucial role for KKR. Nitish Rana scored 63 runs in 34 balls which included 6 fours and 2 sixes. Robin Uthappa scored 67 runs in 50 balls which included 2 fours and 7 sixes.
