I was heartbroken; wanted to win badly: Russell reacts to Tweets after KKR vs CSK

A counter-attacking half-century by Andre Russell in the last game against the Chennai Super Kings brought the Kolkata Knight Riders back on track during their chase of a mammoth 221 runs at the Wankhede Stadium last Wednesday.

The all-rounder was at his destructive best as he smashed 54 runs off 22 balls with three boundaries and six massive hits over the fence to take the team closer to the target.

 Ashish, yet another KKR fan, reckons, “Saddest pic on the internet today. Well tried, Dre Russ.”

Well, I was very emotional and. I didn’t know how to go to the changing room and face all my teammates after leaving a ball and getting out bowled like that. You know, the job is not complete, and I wanted to take the team over the line. So I think the emotions got the best of me but staying strong.

Goutham says, “Love you 3000 times.”

Russell's response: To all my KKR fans out there, I love you 3 million times. Love all the way. We bleed purple, alright?
