Andre Russell is the toast of Kolkata Knight Riders after he helped them oust Delhi Daredevils by 71 runs at Eden Gardens. Russell’s breathtaking 12-ball 41 not only helped KKR overcome their 2-match losing streak, but also helped them fetch two more important points. These points are important as KKR head into the middle stages of the tournament. Russell has surely been a massive contributor for which he also bagged the ‘Super Striker’ Award. His innings comprised of 6 sixes, making him the hands-down candidate to get the award.
But how can it be all cricket with the charismatic Caribbean, dude! We saw Russell playing with the toy car that he got as an award. He was handling the car, not with a remote but with his hands. The adorable video was posted on the Twitter handle of Kolkata Knight Riders. Here is the video:

If you noticed, Russell is also singing the iconic Chamillionaire’s ‘They see me rollin’, they hatin’. Well, Russell seems to come across as a person who is a gentle giant. You certainly do not associate such monstrous hitting from someone who is otherwise so soft and polite. That is what probably makes Andre Russell a serious showstopper.
Russell, who missed out last year, has surely come back stronger and is already making up for lost ground. Now that Daredevils have lost the match, they will have to strike back soon because it is IPL and time flies.
