Andre Russell, the West Indies allrounder, bounced back to form on Monday as he smashed three sixes in the 19th over to take Kolkata Knight Riders on the path to victory against Punjab Kings at Eden Gardens. The bowler at the receiving end was Sam Curran.

Russel and Rinku Singh took KKR out of a difficult situation as they reached 154/4 in 18 overs, needing 26 runs in 12 balls to win.

Although Russell was out on 42 (23b) on the fifth ball of the last over, Rinku hit a four off the final ball to take KKR past the Punjab total and clinch victory.
