VIDEO: Shreyas Iyer gave only 1 over to Andre Russell & he picked up 4 wickets in it

Andre Russell is mostly known for his big hitting in shorter formats and that is what gave him his popularity. But what people often forget is that he is a very great bowler as well and in fact he can be considered to be one of the best all rounders in the West Indies contingent as of now. Andre Russell is often underestimated as far as his bowling is concerned and he proved everyone lost today in the big match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Gujarat Titans. But most importantly he made sure to prove his worth to the KKR captain Shreyas Iyer and he can now expect to get some good bowling overs in the upcoming matches.

Kolkata Knight Riders were performing well in the first innings to begin with and Tim Southee had picked up 3 big wickets. GT were constrained to a less than 150 score. However Shreyas Iyer had not given a single over to Andre Russell and when no bowler had an over left, he brought in Russell to bowl the last over and it was the only over he bowled in this match.

However, what he did next was astonishing and we rarely see overs like this in the Indian Premier League. Andre Russell picked up 4 wickets in the last over in 6 deliveries and gave away just 5 runs. It is surprising how Andre Russell became the highest wicket taker for KKR today despite bowling only 1 over.
