Former England captain questions Shah Rukh Khan’s terrifying KKR batsman


Bengali Hunt Desk: Whatever the goal, having a batsman like Andre Russell in the team means staying calm. This is how Russell defeated Shah Rukh Khan’s Kolkata Knight Riders on Sunday. KKR needed 44 runs from the last 12 balls. He could not rotate the strike or hit the boundary. That’s why the fitness of the Caribbean muscleman has been questioned.

Former England captain Michael Vaughan is notorious for his lip service. “Andre Russell is a match-winner. He can take out any match on his own day. But there is no compromise on fitness. I don’t think it’s perfect. Russell was under pressure to take Duran. It looks like a sack that encloses with a drawstring.

Vaughan also questioned the mentality of KKR. He said that modern cricket always needs 9-10 fit cricketers on the field. But when I look at KKR, I can’t see that thing. Russell can’t be left out. But seeing him, the lack of fitness is clear.

RCB and KKR took to the field in IPL Super Sunday. Virat Kohli, who is in great rhythm, scored a hat trick to win the camp. RCB won the match by 36 runs. After winning the toss, captain Virat decided to bat first. Batting first, his team lost 4 wickets for 204 runs. Glenn Maxwell (6) scored the highest run for RCB. AB de Villiers did 6. Virat’s RCB gave KKR a target of 205 runs. Varun Chakraborty took two wickets for KKR. Famous Krishna and Pat Cummins took one wicket each. Chasing the target of 205 runs in the allotted 20 overs, Morgan lost 8 wickets and got stuck at 18 runs.
