Kolkata: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) kicked off their Indian Premier League (IPL) campaign in style as they beat Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by six wickets, thanks to an unbeaten 49 off 19 balls by Andre Russell.

Needing 53 runs to win from three overs, Russell and Shubman Gill built a 65-run stand for the fifth wicket, as they sealed the match with two balls to spare.

 

After the win, KKR co-owner and Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan took to Twitter to share that Andre Russell was so overwhelmed with the fans’ support that he wanted to cry, but decided not to.

“@Russell12A said to me that he was so overwhelmed with the welcome fans gave him, that he wanted to cry. Then decided big boys don’t cry in public. @NitishRana_27 @robbieuthappa & @RealShubmanGill & the whole team plays for You Kolkata,” the 53-year-old wrote on Twitter.

Dinesh Karthik and co will look to continue the winning momentum when they host Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in their next match here on Wednesday.
