Andre Russell Floored By Ishant Sharma’s Yorker. His Reaction Can’t Be Missed – Watch


Ishant Sharma produced a brilliant yorker that completely bowled over Andre Russell during the IPL 2024 match between Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders on Wednesday. In the final over of KKR's innings, Ishant bowled a devastating ball which hit the stumps and Russell fell to the floor. The video of the dismissal has already gone viral on social media and even Russell could not stop himself from praising the ball while walking towards the dugout. However, the effort was not enough as KKR posted a mammoth score of 272/7 in 20 overs against Delhi Capitals.

Sunil Narine hit a six during his blistering 85-run knock while young Angkrish Raghuvanshi scored a half-century in his first batting appearance in the IPL as Kolkata Knight Riders posted 272 for seven against Delhi Capitals on Wednesday.

Continuing his explosive performance, Narine punished all the Delhi bowlers equally and sent the ball across the boundary line seven times. He also hit seven fours in his innings of 39 balls.

The Capitals were guilty of bowling them out for 53 and Narine created trouble for his opponents by scoring his highest ever score in T20 cricket.

Raghuvanshi (54 off 27 balls), who did not get a chance to bat in his first IPL match against Royal Challengers Bangalore, also joined Narine to hit on all cylinders as the pair scored 104 runs off 48 balls. Explosive partnership.

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

It was a forgettable performance from the Delhi bowlers as they gave away the highest score in the team's history. KKR hit 18 sixes and 28 fours.

Narine hit the first of many fours by collecting a short ball from Khaleel Ahmed at deep point.

West Indies took particular notice of experienced fast bowler Ishant Sharma, scoring 26 runs in the fourth over which included three sixes and two fours, giving a glimpse of what was to come.

At the other end, Phil Salt made a few hits before being dropped by David Warner, but the Englishman could not take advantage of this respite and was out on the very next ball, bringing Raghuvanshi into the middle.

The 18-year-old player hit a four on his very first ball of the IPL and then hit another four.

KKR continued to hit boundaries and scored 88 runs in the powerplay, while the DC bowlers struggled to find ways to contain them.

It seemed that DC was taking the lead by dismissing Narine and Raghuvanshi in consecutive overs but Russell had other plans.

DC bowlers were guilty of feeding full toss balls to the all-rounder which he sent across the boundary with ease.
