West Indies all-rounder Andre Russell, who is known for his big hitting, has once again made headlines on Saturday. During the match against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, Trinbago Knight Riders’ Russell smashed 72 runs off 24 balls in the tournament, helping his side claim a three-run victory as well. However, he smashed six sixes in a row and completely turned the game into TKR’s favour.
Put into bat first, TKR used the given opportunity and put up a big score on the board. In the 7th over from Dominic Drakes, Russell smashed the first six on the third delivery and also sent the next three deliveries for the maximum and brought up his half-century in only 17 balls as well. In the 8th over, when Jon-Russ Jaggesar came to bowl, Andre Russell hit sixes on his first balls as well. He then went on to smash a boundary on the third ball as well. And, St Kitts finally dismissed Russell who got caught by Duan Jansen on the last ball of the over as well.
