In the 35th match of the current IPL, Gujarat won the first match of the day by 6 runs on Sunday (April 23). Hardik Pandya’s team scored 156 runs for the loss of 9 wickets after batting first. Kolkata lost 6 wickets in reply and stopped at 146 runs.
In this match, Andre Russell took 4 wickets with the ball in his hand in the last over of the innings of Gujarat Titans. Then he made a storm with the bat. But his great all-round skill was in vain in the end. Because Kolkata Knight Riders left the field as the losing team. This is Kolkata’s fifth defeat in the eighth match of this year’s event. On the other hand, this is Gujarat’s sixth win in the seventh match. Collecting 12 points, they are at the top of the points table. And Kolkata is in the seventh place with 6 points from 6 matches.
KKR captain Shreyas Ayyar called on Andre Russell to bowl the last over against the Gujarat Titans. What Russell did with just one over was unbelievable. He took 4 wickets in that over by bowling only one over.
Andre Russell set a different record with 4 wickets
He is the only bowler in the history of men’s T20 cricket to take 4 wickets in just 1 over in an innings. However, he is third in the list of bowlers who have taken 4 wickets in an over in the IPL. Earlier, Yuzbendra Chahal (2022) and Amit Mishra (2013) took 4 wickets in one over. But these two took 4 wickets in one over but bowled more than one over in the innings.
Andre Russell returned Abhinav Manhar with a first ball to Rinku Singh’s palm in the deep midwicket. In the next ball, Loki Ferguson was again dismissed by Rinku at deep midwicket. Aljari Joseph took 1 run in the third ball. Rahul Tewatia sent the fourth ball to the boundary with a mid wicket. The next ball was caught by Rinku Singh and dismissed by Russell. In the sixth ball, new batsman Yash Dayal was caught and bowled and set a new precedent.
