IPL 2019: Andre Russell was the big story of IPL 2019. The incredible manner in which he hit sixes this IPL has never been seen before. KKR may not have made the cut for the playoffs, but Russell amassed 510 runs in 13 matches at an unreal strike-rate of 204.82 and at an astounding average of 56.67. His brilliance won him the Most Valuable Player award after the IPL Final was over. His wife Jassym Lora, who was always there alongside Andre, congratulated her husband in the most wonderful way. “Sometimes I look at you and wonder how I got to be so d*mn Lucky!” Also Read - IPL 2021: We Made a Few Mistakes, Will Need to Sort it Out - Eoin Morgan
Jassym Lora has inarguably been one of the most popular WAGs during the season. She not only set social media on fire with her presence but also won many hearts.
Russell would be gearing up to represent the Windies in the upcoming World Cup. Windies would dearly hope he can continue his form from the IPL to the World Cup.
” I am very emotional to be a part of this. This contest has been going on back and forth, other guys have been going at it as well. Hopefully next season we go all the way and I can collect the keys myself,” said Russell in a voice message after receiving the coveted award.
Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians beat Chennai Super Kings in a last-ball thriller at Hyderabad to clinch a record fourth IPL title.
