Andre Russell’s ability to hit power deserves to be branded as ‘neighbor’s envy, owner’s pride’. Even in the previous Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) match against the Gujarat Titans in the 2022 Indian Premier League (IPL) on Saturday, with his team chasing a 157 target, the Jamaican rider shot 48 of 25 balls (6x6s, 1x4s) before falling in the final game because KKR failed to win. However, Russell’s impressive performance was praised by everyone. Rival bowlers, however, may have different things to say with Russell’s aggression making their lives difficult.

Now, in a video posted on KKR social media, something different can be seen facing Russell’s brutal blows. After Russell gave a tonk to a bowler (not seen in the video) for a skier, a KKR support staff could be seen holding a broken chair. Russell’s attack was so strong that it left a hole in the chair. “Wait for the #MuscleRussell effect to come to an end!” read the caption of the 18 -second video clip.


In the 2022 IPL, Russell has scored 227 runs in eight games at an average of 45.40. The strike rate is a confusing 180.16. Overall, over 10 seasons, Russell has scored 1927 runs at an average of 30.59. Its cumulative strike rate is 178.76.

With the ball, too, he has been effective. In the last game against GT, Russell gave up just five runs and took four wickets. He was the last best bowler in IPL history. The four victims were Abhinav Manohar, Lockie Ferguson, Rahul Tewatia and Yash Dayal. He is also the best bowling figure by any bowler at the DY Patil Stadium in the IPL. Russell is also currently the fourth-highest wicket scorer (eight scalps) in the 20th round of the IPL since 2020.
