Andre Russell brought down by Ishant Sharma’s Yorker. Her reaction can’t be missed – Watch | Cricket News


Ishant Sharma produced a superb yorker that completely floored Andre Russell in the IPL 2024 match between Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders on Wednesday. In the finale of KKR’s innings, Ishant produced a devastating delivery which crashed into the stumps and left Russell on the ground. The video of the dismissal has already gone viral on social media and during his walk to the dugout, even Russell couldn’t help but applaud the delivery. However, the effort was not enough as KKR ended up scoring a mammoth 272/7 in 20 overs against Delhi Capitals.

Sunil Narine produced a six-hit exhibition en route to a blistering 85 while youngster Angkrish Raghuvanshi scored a fifty on his IPL batting debut as Kolkata Knight Riders posted an imposing 272 for seven against the Capitals from Delhi on Wednesday.

Continuing his explosive run, Narine punished all Delhi bowlers equally, sending the ball seven times over the boundary rope. He also hit seven fours during his 39-ball stay.

The Capitals were guilty of dropping him to 53 and Narine made his opponents suffer by notching his highest ever score in T20 cricket.

Raghuvanshi (54 off 27 balls), who failed to hit in his first IPL match against Royal Challengers Bengaluru, was also firing on all cylinders, complementing Narine as the pair shared an explosive 104-run stand off 48 balls.

Andre Russell (41 off 19 balls) and Rinku Singh (26 off 8 balls) provided the final brilliance for KKR.

It was an unforgettable performance from the Delhi bowlers as they conceded the highest total in the team’s history. KKR hit as many as 18 sixes and 28 fours.

Narine hit the first of his many boundaries when he hit a short ball from Khaleel Ahmed to deep point.

The West Indian took a special liking to veteran pacer Ishant Sharma, collecting 26 runs from the fourth over, including three sixes and two fours, giving a glimpse of what was to come.

At the other end, Phil Salt scored a few before being dropped by David Warner, but the Englishman was unable to take advantage of the reprieve, coming out with the very next ball to bring Raghuvanshi to mid on.

The 18-year-old hit his first ever ball of the IPL for a boundary and that was followed by four more.

KKR continued to hit numerous boundaries, amassing 88 runs in the powerplay as DC’s bowlers struggled to find ways to stop them.

DC appeared to make inroads by dismissing Narine and Raghuvanshi in consecutive overs, but Russell had other plans.

DC’s bowlers were guilty of feeding the all-rounder with full tosses which he sent to the boundary easily.
