IPL 2019: Andre Russell has been the player of the season. Russell’s breathtaking form has not only won the hearts of his fans but also his critics. Russell, who is looked at more as a finisher, has evolved as a batsman and is winning games on his own. The Jamaican who recently turned 31 thanked his wife for his good run. Jassym Lora has been traveling with the team and has been spotted at venues rooting for him. Recently, a surprise party was organised for Russell who apparently was unaware of it. His wife with support from the KKR players was able to execute the party. In the pictures, fans can see Russell’s wife always close to him. She is wearing a black outfit, whereas the Jamaican is donning a smart-looking short.
Here are the pictures:
Russell has had a dream season where he has smashed more than 50 sixes. He has amassed 486 runs in 12 matches at an average of 69.42. What stood out in this season was his strike-rate which is a staggering 207.69.
Earlier in the month, Russell celebrated his 31st birthday with a win against Mumbai Indians where he smashed 80 off 40 balls coming in at No 3. The win over Mumbai Indians was also the 100th IPL win for the franchise. KKR would be hoping Russell can do what he has done all season in the remaining two matches.
