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.
