Sam Curran stops Russel Mania

Kolkata’s top order failed terribly, but the middle order came hard on Chennai’s bowlers, who got hit a lot by Russell, Karthik & Cummins. Andre Russell who was smacking hard tonight got out very cheaply. Dre Russ, who was firing all over the ground, scored a quickfire 54 off just 22 balls. He hit 6’6s and splendid innings with a strike rate of 245. Russell was looking all set to continue with his big hits and take his team, after a complete batting failure at the top. Sam clean bowled Russell with a decent yorker, which he thought to be a wide ball and it completely surprised him, after getting bowled. He misjudged the ball and it was a big celebration for the boys in yellow, to dismiss the big man, who was hitting very hard & long.

The rest of the line-up is in good form.
