How many times has Andre Russell rescued us from the jaws of defeat? We've stopped counting. But last night it wasn't just about our Jamaican all-rounder. Along with Nitish Rana, the pair had a staggering partnership of 118 runs in just eight overs.

Rana's best IPL knock came for a losing cause and Dre Russ' breathtaking 65 runs from 25 balls couldn't help us cross the finishing line as we fell short by 10 runs.

The home team faced their fourth defeat in a row, but it was the double Rs, Russell & Rana who made sure that they didn't go down without a fight. The Twitter world had plenty of praises for Russell-Rana's partnership. 

Here's how they reacted:

We always do

We'll come back stronger

Best of Russell-mania is yet to come

Russell + 10 Other Knights
