Russell's records in six-hitting fest

Andre Russell's flurry of sixes catapulted Kolkata Knight Riders to the first 200-plus total in this year's IPL.

 

He was helped along by a generous supply of full and good-length balls, which he happily dispatched into the stands at Chepauk. Here are some of the records he came upon along the way.

 

17 - Sixes in the Knight Riders' innings, which equals the highest in any IPL innings at the venue.

Chennai Super Kings had 17 against Rajasthan Royals in 2010, in which M Vijay hit 11. Andre Russell hit 11 sixes on Tuesday (today).

 

88* - Russell's score, the highest by any batsman at No. 7 or lower in IPL history. The previous best was 68, by Dwayne Bravo - three days ago against Mumbai Indians.

 

50 - Runs conceded by Bravo, only the fourth time in his T20 career that he conceded 50 or more runs. In terms of economy rate, today's number of 16.66 is his worst in any game in which he has bowled three or more overs, and his second-worst ever: he went for 34 off two against Bangladesh in the 2007 World T20.

7 - Sixes conceded by Bravo today, the most he has ever conceded in a T20 innings. His previous worst was five.

 

11 - Sixes hit by Russell, which equals the most in any T20 innings of less than 100. Chris Lynn, Evin Lewis and Ross Whiteley are the others who have hit 11 sixes in scores of less than 100.
