the fastest fifty of the IPL season 2019 Off 17 balls! He’s in spectacular
form, if the numbers didn’t suggest that to you already. 2 fours and 7 sixes so
far. He’s seeing ’em like football. If only they had something around 200 to
chase. 230-something feels like a little too much, even with Hardik going
bonkers right now.

update-KKR win by 34 runs
On a day
where everybody thought, Mumbai could have won if the target was around 200.
Those 33 extra runs did actually hurt them. Hardik was superb, but Andre
Russell’s all-round effort was too hard to beat. He didn’t just score 80* off
40 balls but also chipped in with bowling figures of 2 for 25. In the context
of this high-scoring game, that’s something incredible.
the match: Andre
Russell for his all-round performance 80* and 2/25.
