Ravichandran Ashwin Clean Bowls Andre Russell With "Unplayable" Delivery

By H.JanGra April 19, 2022

Ravichandran Ashwin provided RR with a huge breakthrough in their high-scoring thriller against KKR in  (IPL) 2022 on Monday

He sent the very dangerous Andre Russell packing for a golden duck.

Russell came in when KKR were on track to chase down their target of 218

But the wily spinner outfoxed him with a carrom ball that clattered into the stumps after beating the outside edge

It was a big moment for the Royals and Ashwin knew it, as was visible in his pumped up celebration that followed.

After Ashwin got the wicket of Russell, it was Yuzvendra Chahal who stole the show with a hat-trick in the 17th over to complete his five-wicket haul.

The effort from the two spinners ensured KKR fell short of an epic chase as the Royals registered a 7-run win to go second in the IPL 2022 points table.

Earlier, Jos Buttler hit his second century of the season to help the Royals post 217/5 after being put in to bat.

This was the highest score by any team this season.
