Andre Russell mania was on full display in the match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Punjab Kings at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Monday in the IPL 2023 on the last ball. Chasing the target of 180 runs set by the Punjab Kings, Kolkata was 124/4 in 15.2 overs as captain NiteshRana lost his wicket after scoring a half century. After him came Andre Russell. The West Indies all-rounder was not having a good time with the bat in this IPL until their match against the Punjab Kings on Monday, when the old Russell came back. He, along with Rinku Singh, regularly got boundaries as KKR reached 154/4 in 18 overs and needed 26 runs in 12 balls.

After this, Russell did what he is best known for as he smacked three sixes on the balls of Sam Curran as KKR got 20 runs in the penultimate over. Russell lost his wicket on the fifth ball of the last over after scoring 42 runs in 23 balls. Then Rinku Singh hit a boundary in the last ball, which took KKR over the line towards victory.
