KKR owner Shah Rukh Khan Salutes Andre Russell Heroics

Written by Vipin Darwade

Andre Russell decimated the Royal Challengers Bangalore bowlers to hand KKR one of the most unlikeliest of wins in IPL 2019. The big-hitting all-rounder smashed an unbeaten 48 runs off just 13 balls as KKR overhauled the 206-run target with five balls to spare. Following Andre Russell’s smash-and-grab at Bengaluru, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) owner Shah Rukh Khan saluted the Jamaican star by superimposing his image on a picture of Baahubali, a fictional character from one of India’s biggest hit films.

Shah Rukh Khan was all praise for his team but had a special message for his West Indian star.

In another tweet, the Bollywood superstar labelled Andre Russell a “champion” and referred to his West Indian import as “MuscleMan”.

“And you guys in the Dugout who said game/set/& match……u may know your cricket but you don’t know @Russell12A !!! WOW u CHAMPION. This calls for Wine my MuscleMan!” he wrote.

Andre Russell’s superlative knock helped KKR register five-wicket win to climb to the second spot in the IPL Points Table with three wins out of four matches.
