A Andre Russell powered Kolkata Knight Riders thrashed Sunrisers Hyderabad by 6 wickets that too with 2 balls to spare in their Indian Premier League (IPL) encounter at Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Sunday.  Bangladesh ace all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan was awarded a rare token of respect on the day as he rang the bells to start the match.

Hyderabad scored 181 runs losing 3 wickets courtesy of a brilliant David Warner who scored 85 runs. In their reply, Kolkata didn’t look too comfortable in the middle overs but a valiant cameo of 49 runs off 19 deliveries from Andre Russell eventually got them sailing past the target.
