Andre Russell roared back to form with a quickfire 50 off just 21 balls against the Chennai Super Kings at the Wankhede Stadium on Wednesday.
He reached his half-century with a six off Ravindra Jadeja. Russell was particularly severe on Shardul Thakur, collecting 24 off the medium-pacer’s first over. He began by clobbering a full and wide delivery over point for six.
A couple of wides later, an outside edge ran away to the third-man fence. It was followed by a flat-batted hit over deep cover for six. He finished with a six over mid-wicket.
After slamming three fours and six sixes, he was clean bowled by Sam Curran for a 22-ball 54.
