Riding on Russell’s unbeaten 40-ball 80, KKR kept their playoffs hope alive as they defeated Mumbai Indians (MI) by 34-run win despite Hardik Pandya’s fireworks in an Indian Premier League (IPL) clash at the Eden Gardens here on Sunday.

“Russell is a great player, he’s a special player and it’s good to see him grow as a player. The maturity he’s showing is great to see,” said Karthik in the post-match presentation ceremony. Prior to Sunday’s game, Russell had expressed his displeasure towards the decision-making in the team.

Russell had said that it’s not the batting that’s been struggling, but the bowling. “We get to totals we should defend,” he had said at the press conference before the game. He had spoken about how he had talked to the coach about his batting order, and about how, despite being among the runs, he had not left the room in days because he was not feeling good about the losses.
