It was Andre Russell who once again showed his prowess with the bat and bailed out Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) from a difficult position to help them win the match. Russell smashed 48 off just 13 balls while coming to bat at number six. Russell power hitting received praise from all over including Kolkata Knight Riders team owner and Bollywood Superstar Shah Rukh Khan. SRK was so impressed with Andre Russell's match-winning knock in Friday's game against RCB that he shared a picture of Russell as the mighty Bahubali in one of his tweets. Andre Russell's 13-Ball 48 Powers KKR to Victory, Hands 5th Defeat to RCB in IPL 2019, Twitter Goes Berserk with Memes.
